Are election judges paid?

Yes. The current pay is $10 per hour.


Minnesota Statute 204B.195 allows individuals to take time off from work, without penalty or loss of wages, to serve as elections judges on election day(s). A 20-day written notice requesting to be absent from work for this purpose must be submitted to the employer. The request must be accompanied by a certification from the City of Coon Rapids indicating the days and hours the employee will serve as an Election Judge.


The employer may reduce the salary of the employee by the amount received for working as an election judge for hours the employee would normally work. The statute makes this decision optional for the employer.
