Election Worker Registry 

We are actively recruiting election workers to be on our registry to be contacted for upcoming elections. We need information concerning applications for judges, alternate judges and clerks for Early Voting Election positions. We also need information about Election Day judges and alternate election judges. Typically, the election day judge for each precinct or grouping of precincts chooses the clerical assistants, without the need for prior background checks or acceptance of employment by Dallas County Elections Department. These are all paid positions. A description of the jobs and application are below:

ELECTION DAY JUDGE

Recruits and schedules clerks (including the political party selected alternate judge) for length of the voting cycle.

ALTERNATE ELECTION JUDGE

  •  These positions are held by Democrats when the Judge is a Republican.
  •  Should the Judge fail to perform duties, the alternate is usually asked to fill-in and all the duties listed above are then required. Acting as a Democratic alternate requires the individual to know all the responsibilities of the Republican judge to ensure that the election is conducted properly and fairly with no interference from outside forces. These are important positions as a number of Republican voting locations need our oversight. Unless the Alternate Judge is promoted to Acting Judge, all duties are the same as the duties of the Election Clerk.
