The Illinois GOP and the Republican Renaissance Group are working cooperatively to recruit 200
Election Judges for each of the Early Voting sites located in Cook County.
It has come to our attention that there are almost no Republican Election Judges for these locations
Early voting begins on October 11 and concludes on October 28th.
According to Illinois statutes, the Democrats and the Republicans are allowed two judges per polling
place. There are about 100 early voting locations in Chicago and Suburban Cook County.
Our mission is to recruit 200 judges by early next week. We need 200 by the end of the day on Sunday.
Below you will see the necessary information. Please note this role includes a daily pay of
$200.00. There are 16 to 20 days involved and the applicant must be available for each day.
Election Judges will be assigned as close as possible to their home. The locations are listed below.
