Election Judges

Thank you for your interest in becoming an election judge. Because so many voters in Calvert County have signed up to become election judges, we are able to staff our vote centers for the November 2020 election. However, we are still accepting applications for voters who are interested in serving as stand by judges in case other judges cannot serve.


Registered voters who are interested in working as an election judge are encouraged to call the election board office for an application or fill out the online application below. The qualifications for eligibility are to be able to clearly speak, read, and write the English language, as well as have some level of comfort on computers. All party affiliations are welcome.
