In addition, election judges may not serve as a campaign manager for a candidate or as treasurer for any campaign financial entity.
According to a news release, the Montgomery County Board of Elections especially needs election judges who are bilingual in English and Spanish, and workers who are willing to fill vacancies throughout the county.
If you are interested, you will need to sign up early, because the application process requires both an online quiz and hands-on training before you can be assigned to a polling place. The pay varies, based on the position.
