Sure, it was expected – but really, doesn’t it deserve better than page 8? Isn’t it important?

It didn’t even make the Missoulian’s web page.

I just got this notice from the Missoula County Elections office:

The Election’s Office and your friends and neighbors need your help! The Missoula County Elections Office needs more than 600 people to run an election and is at least 250 people short of this goal. In recent years, it has become increasingly difficult to find qualified people willing to work as election judges at our local polling locations. In order to keep your neighborhood polling location open, we need people like yourself to step forward. Your local polls are a great place to visit with your friends and neighbors and perform a valuable public service.

There are three elections this year; the school election on May 6th, the primary on June 3rd and the general on November 4th. In order to qualify as an election judge you must be registered to vote in Missoula County and attend a mandatory training session in March. Judges are paid for attending the training as well as for working on Election Day. It is possible to work a half shift rather than the full day on Election Day if this is more convenient for you.

The day is long, but the reward is substantial. Working as an election judge is an opportunity to participate in the electoral process, perform a valuable public service, and get paid.

What could be better? You get paid for performing a crucial civic duty! And by signing up, you ensure a smooth elections process. Remember, it’s quite possible our upcoming primary is going to be an absolute madhouse.

So…if you’re tech savvy, a registered Missoula County voter, and around for the next two years, consider becoming an elections judge. The county needs you. If they don’t find enough judges, they’ll have to close some polling places…

If you’re interested, contact the Missoula County Eletions office by email, or at 258-4751. Or drop by the Missoula County Elections office at 200 W. Broadway.
