Missoula County starts recruiting election help for 2018 season

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Missoula County is starting to recruit people to help with the 2018 election season, hoping to recruit up to 800 workers.

The election judges are the key component to running local elections, helping voters cast their ballots correctly, supervising the collection and processing of votes and upholding election law. 

The county is also hoping to find people to fill other election assignments, including polling place managers, poll book judges, and support staff for the Elections Center at the Missoula County Fairgrounds. 

The county also launched an aggressive recruitment campaign in advance of the busy 2016 election season, hoping to develop a new generation of election workers to help the county maintain its network of polling places. 

Anyone who is interested in helping out must be a registered voter and be willing to take training classes in February. 

The Elections Office is also partnering with local organizations and businesses in launching a new campaign, “Give a Day for Democracy.” This effort encourages local businesses and groups to support their employees and members in serving Missoula voters.

The Elections Office provides a new online class schedule and registration at www.MissoulaElectionJudge.com. Those interested can also call (406) 258-4751 or email electioninfo@missoulacounty.us  with their name and contact information.
