Our democracy is rule by the American people. Democracy is not a spectator sport. It is every day people banding together to create self-governance. Even though it may seem that larger forces control the election process, that’s not true. Free and fair elections are made by individuals, on the ground, certifying that elections happen on time, correctly, tabulated, and all eligible citizens are allowed the ability to vote.
We need election judges locally. Training/refresher classes are available before each election. Attending a class will give you the additional information you need to help you become
a successful judge.
