Cascade County Elections Administrator Terry Thompson and her staff are hosting another Election Judge training session on March 21st.

"The severity of what does the job entail and what are the expectations, because everything that they do is is determined by the statute of what they can and cannot do and every single part of the process. So it's extremely important that these people are certified. And I think that makes them proud that they can say, hey, I've been a certified judge," explained Thompson.

Election Judges help Cascade County Elections Office staff with daily polling places processes. It can range from voter registration, checking in voters, and providing insight on the voting process.
