It is with heavy hearts that we offer our condolences and express our sympathies to the family of Bill Whitbeck. Bill was an amazing man, a larger than life man of action and intellect and a defender of our shared Republican values. Bill accomplished many great things during his ninety years. Let his memory serve as an inspiration to us all, and let’s follow in Bill’s footsteps and strive to make the world a better place that we found it.

The city of Minneapolis is looking to add 50 more election judges for the November 6th election. While we’ve made some progress in balancing the party affiliation of election judges in the city, which is required in MN Statute 204B 19 Subd. 5, there is still a long way to go. Please consider this very important part of holding open and honest elections. You’ll be paid and can work a 1/2 day if that fits your schedule. Information and links are listed below.
General information from the city website:
Minneapolis Election Judges must:
- Be a United States citizen
- Be an eligible voter in the State of Minnesota
- Be able to read, write and speak English
- Not be a candidate at that election
- Not be the spouse, parent, child, stepchild, sibling or step-sibling of any election judge serving in the same precinct or of any candidate at that election
- Not be a challenger
Judges are required to fill out an application demonstrating volunteer or professional experience. We regret that we cannot acknowledge receipt of each individual application. Successful applicants will be notified when they have been selected by the appointing authority, and scheduled for training.
To apply to be an election judge:
Complete the application online or print the application page and submit it via fax (612) 673-2756 or U.S. mail.
Send your name and address to address below and they will mail you an application:
