Are you the One?


WAUKEGAN, Illinois - Dependable. Friendly. Great customer service skills. Accurate. Is this you? If so, Lake County Clerk Willard Helander suggests you apply to be an election judge for the November 4th Election.


Judges must be a U.S. citizen, registered to vote, eligible to vote in the November election, able to read and write English, and enthusiastic about customer service. In addition to meeting the basic requirements, election judges are required to attend a training session prior to Election Day. Training classes are available in locations throughout the county during a variety of daytime and evening classes. English/Spanish bilingual judges are encouraged to apply.


Helander explained, "Working in the polls offers citizens a first-hand role in our democracy and ensures that voting does work in our county."
