Poll judges needed for primary

September 01, 2006|By Larry Carson | Larry Carson,SUN REPORTER

Howard County election officials are still searching for 89 more poll judges from both political parties to work during the Sept. 12 primary, according to Betty Nordaas, the county elections administrator.

The one-day job pays $165 for most judges, though chief judges get $220. Judges also must attend a training session, for which they are paid an additional $30. Most of those needed - 51 - would be alternate judges - people called in if regular judges cannot work. Judges need to be at their assigned polling place by 6 a.m. on Election Day and normally work until about 9 p.m., an hour after the polls close, Nordaas said.

Anyone interested should call the board at 410-313-5820.
