Help America Vote Day designated by USEAC for January 30, 2024

The United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC) has designated January 30, 2024, as Help America Vote Day. This day of action is meant to assist election judge recruitment efforts in communities across the country. The Peoria County Election Commission is actively recruiting election judges for the upcoming March 19, 2024, General Primary Election and beyond.

Election judges are selected and trained by the Election Commission in advance of their work on Election Day. Last November, Peoria County announced that the Board of Election Commissioners increased the daily starting pay of its election judges to $200 as part of its annual budget.

Election judge duties include setting up voting equipment, signing in and processing voters, demonstrating voting procedures, assisting voters, closing the polls, and returning election materials back to the Election Commission at the end of the night.

To be an election judge in Illinois, you must meet the following requirements: 

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be a registered voter
  • Meet the physical and mental requirements
  • Be able to speak, read and write the English language
  • Not be a candidate for any office in the election or an elected precinct committeeperson
  • Not be a sex offender 

If you are a junior or senior in good standing with a GPA of at least 3.0, you may also be eligible to serve.
