In order to become an election judge, registered voters need to be of one party affiliation or another. You determine your party affiliation when you vote in the primaries and select a ballot for one of the established parties. Election judges are responsible for the proper and lawful conduct of the election in the polling place. Election judges are commissioned as officers of the Circuit Court and are required to take an oath to uphold the constitutions of the United States and the State of Illinois.
