Election Day Judges have been a staple in Polling Places from the beginning of DeKalb County Elections. We now have need for Early Voting, Early and Grace Voting, Election Day Registration and Vote by Mail Judges; each job is distinctly different, yet follow the same core principles and election laws.

In the last several years High School students, throughout DeKalb County, have increasingly become involved as Judges on Election Day; it is a wonderful way for them to learn firsthand how our electoral process works.
