Letter from MHEC: Students as Election Judges

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the State Board of Elections (SBE) is currently experiencing a shortage of election judges to staff the polls.  This presents a unique opportunity for students to participate in the democratic process while helping the citizens of Maryland. 


To help address this shortage, I am calling on you to share the attached letter with students and encourage them to consider serving as an election judge this November.  Doing so will help to ensure that Marylanders have access to polling stations and are afforded the opportunity to vote without undue delay or interference.


Thank you for helping to provide all Marylanders with full, equal and unfettered access to vote in November.

If you are interested in serving your community and helping to protect the democratic process, please visit the SBE website at to sign-up to become an election judge. With the election fast approaching, please sign-up as soon as possible. Questions can be submitted to or to 410-269-2840.
