Interested in being an election judge?

While I want to keep the focus on Chicago and our general communities, Marathon Pundit is putting out a call for election judges in Chicago & Cook County. To be fair, Marathon Pundit is a Republican blog for the most part and certainly reflect a push in general by city Republicans to recruit new election judges. In fact many of you who voted Republican in this year's primary election should've gotten a letter from the Chicago Board of Elections encouraging you to consider being an election judge.

The Marathon Pundit post offered a link to website that will provide more information for those who are interested in being an election judge on Election Day and for two years after that @ http://www.electionjudges.us/. The deadline according to that website is now Sept. 27th to file an application. If you want more information about being an election judge in Chicago, you should check out this page from the Chicago Board of Elections website.

In a post about election season activities I noted that the Republican Committeeman for the 6th Ward - Darnell Macklin -  is seeking election judges. You need not have pulled a Republican ballot in this year's primaries however. Perhaps you didn't vote at all this year, the call is for you as well. BTW, this information was posted on Concerned Citizen's of Chatham FB page recently.
I'm seeking registered voters to serve as election judges on election day. The election judge appointment is for a two year period. I'm looking for Republican primary voters and or persons who didn't vote in the March 2012 primary.....the pay is $170.00.

So now you know the email of the 6th Ward Republican Committeeman and you have contact via http://www.electionjudges.us/ with a phone number 312.242.1818 (the number contained on the website appears to be incorrect). So you have two ways to become a Republican election judge this year if you're interested.
