QUALIFICATIONS OF ELECTION JUDGES
Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute 115.085. All Election Judges must be
registered to vote in the State of Missouri and each election judge shall be a
person of good repute and character who can speak, read, and write the English
language. No person shall serve as an election judge at any polling place in
which his or her name or the name of a relative within the second degree
appears on the ballot, unless the candidate is unopposed in which case the
relative may still serve as an election judge. Election judges may not hold any
elective public office with the exception of being a member of a political party
committee or township or being elected to a board or commission of a political
subdivision or special district. If an election judge is on a board or commission
they will not be allowed to work at a polling place where such political subdivision
or special district has an issue or candidate on the ballot.
There will be at least 4 judges per polling place with an equal number of
republicans and democrats. Each polling place will have one republican and one
democratic supervisor. Polls open at 6:00 a.m. and close either at 7:00 p.m. or
until the last person standing in line at 7:00 p.m. is allowed to vote. Election
judges arrive at 5:00 a.m. and will stay either until votes are counted or until the
supervisors dismisses them. All judges are required to attend a training session
prior to the election.
