The city of Pierz is looking for individuals interested in becoming certified to be an election judge.
To qualify, residents must be eligible to vote in the state of Minnesota, able to read and speak English and be trained and certified to be an election judge. Training consists of a two-hour class offered through the Morrison County Auditor/Treasurer’s office.
Training sessions will be held in the meeting rooms at the Morrison County Government Center in Little Falls as follows: July 21,from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.; July 29, from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. and from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. and July 30, from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Three shifts will be available on the dates of the Primary and General Elections for judges to work. Judges will be compensated for mileage and hours for training, as well as hours worked on election days. Judges are also eligible for time off work without loss of pay from current employment.
Anyone who has served as a judge in previous elections and wants to be a judge this year, is still required to take the mandated certification course, as it is needed every two years to maintain eligibility.
For more information or to sign up, contact Pierz City Clerk Matt Bell at (320) 468-7114 before Friday, July 11.
