Election Judge




Election judges are temporary, paid employees of local election officials trained to handle all aspects of voting at the polling place. Serving as an election judge is a chance to learn about elections, and is a great service to the community. 

On Election Day, there can be as many as 30,000 election judges temporarily employed at polling places across Minnesota. You too can be an election judge—many towns and cities are always looking for qualified applicants. 

Request for leave per our contract: Leave to Serve as an Election Judge.  Upon twenty (20) calendar days advance request, leave shall be granted for purposes of serving as an election judge in any election (Article 14, Section 2).

Who can be an election judge?

How do I apply to become an election judge?

MAPE Political Action Committee

MAPE Political Action Committee





MAPE PAC directs political action by providing election campaign support in the form of financial contributions, screening and endorsing Minnesota candidates, and working on campaigns for people who support us as state employees. More Information

MAPE endorsement list

Endorsement Process: The MAPE PAC screens candidates at their request; the PAC does not seek out candidates to endorse. Once a candidate has requested a screening, an invite to all other pro-labor candidates involved in that particular race is sent out. The PAC asks candidates questions regarding MAPE priorities specific to that office, as well as questions regarding their campaign. The PAC Board may vote to endorse, not endorse, or defer endorsement until a later time. The PAC also has an automatic endorsement process for incumbent legislators who have a lifetime voting record of 90 percent or higher. The voting record is calculated from the legislative session vote scores, which are informed by the MAPE legislative priorities. In extraordinary circumstances, the PAC may vote to withhold an incumbent's automatic endorsement.

Safe and Secure: Vote by Mail

Voting by mail during the 2020 election cycle is the single most important way you can help keep our community safe. Minnesota has a long history of absentee voting by mail and now everyone can take advantage and vote by mail. Voting by mail allows you to vote from the safety of your home, without having to worry about the spread of COVID-19. It also allows residents who need to vote on Election Day, such as those who recently moved here, shorter lines to ensure everyone can vote. 

Ways to Vote



In Minnesota, you can vote early by mail or in-person starting 46 days before Election Day. Learn about secure and fair elections.
