Local officials are anticipating a huge turnout for the November elections and a large amount of help will be needed.
DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg explains the 23 precincts across the County are in need of election judges. He says anyone who can dedicate almost an entire day will get paid for their time.
The $125 for the day of work cannot be adjusted for this coming election because the budget is in place but Newberg indicates as they look ahead, there will be consideration to increase that amount.
To learn more about becoming an election judge, you can contact DeWitt County Republican Party President Dustin Peterson, DeWitt County Democratic Party President Terry Redman, or Dana Smith at the DeWitt County Clerk's office.
