The Office of the Clerk and Recorder Elections Division is looking for qualified students who are ready and willing to lend a hand with the 2012 Primary and General Elections. Colorado election law has special provisions that allow young people to work as student election judges. Student election judges provide an important service to our electoral process, while gaining an awareness of how we assure the fairness and transparency of elections. You will obtain greater insight into the importance of citizen participation in our public affairs, and you will work shoulder to shoulder with fellow election judges in following the laws that guarantee voters’ rights. As an added bonus, you will be paid for your service. Election judges are paid $10 – $13 per hour, depending on assignment.
Qualified students are required to attend a paperwork session and receive election training from the Denver Elections Division. Students will directly with us; their peers will evaluate their efforts. Most student election judges will work one Election day, although particularly dedicated students will be considered for longer assignments.
