Become an Election Judge

Republicans, in particular, are needed!

McLean County has two election authorities. The McLean County Clerk’s Office handles all elections for the county except the City of Bloomington. Voting in the City of Bloomington is conducted by the Bloomington Election Commission.

Terry Luce from the Bloomington Election Commission has just contacted the MCGOP, asking us to put out an alert that Republican election judges are urgently needed. Judges manage the election at the precinct level. It's a great way to support our election process and can be a lot of fun.

Here is the website with detailed information:

In addition, the following message was sent to the attention of Democrat and Republican Party Chairs by McLean County Clerk Kathy Michael. She expresses an urgent need for election judges in upcoming elections.

For the first time in my nearly 14 years as County Clerk, we look to be very short of election judges in many Polling Place locations throughout the county. We are asking each McLean County Party Chair to continue to urge your precinct committeepersons and others to continue to recruit election judges for the March 19, 2024, Primary. The pay for their long day is $220. If they work outside their home precinct, they are reimbursed for mileage. Here are the locations where presently, the need is the greatest:
In Normal: We need approximately 80 more judges, there is a need at all Normal locations for more judges. Specific Rural Locations in need:

Bloomington 01 (township building)
Bloomington 02 (fire station)
Blue Mound (Cooksville Fire Station)
Chenoa Cropsey
Dry Grove (Danvers area)
Martin (Colfax)

The sign-up form can be found at the link below, or they can email or call me/us to sign up and/or get more information as to the online training, etc.

If you can assist, please get in touch with our McLean County Clerk’s Office through the link above.

Won't you help out, please?
