With only two weeks left until training and certification week, the Missoula County Elections Office is still looking to recruit people for the position of election judge. Rebecca Connors with the elections office said anyone registered to vote in Missoula County can apply.

“We’re less than half of our recruitment goal,” Connors said. “We’re only at about 46 percent of the judges that we need to recruit. We want to send the message out that we still need people to help us with elections for the 2014-2015 election cycle.”

Election judges are a paid public service position. Individuals are compensated for their time on Election Day and for time spent in training. To sign up, Connors recommended visiting the Missoula County website.

“We have an election judge page where they can go online and they can actually schedule classes online, and view a list off different classes they can sign up for,” Connors said. “They can also give our office a call at 258-4751 and be able to schedule classes by calling our office, or email us at”

Connors said the Missoula County Elections Office is trying to recruit up to 800 judges this year to offer more half day shifts. A full day on Election Day is around 15 to 16 hours whereas a half day is seven and a half hours.

Missoula County will host four elections in 2014. Two school elections will be held in the spring, followed by the presidential primary in June, and general federal election in November.
