Hiring Process Overview
Per statute, for most election positions (judges), please know that our office must first hire from names provided by the Boulder County Party Chairs. We begin hiring judges after we have received recommended judge lists from the local Democratic and Republican party chairs (about 6-8 weeks out from each election). Once we get this information, we send out communications to these groups of people and include a job flyer describing our judge positions and schedule commitments. When these lists are exhausted, we are then able to reach out to others who have expressed interest in working with Boulder County Elections, including then reaching out to unaffiliated and minor party member voters interested in working.
Student Democracy Program
We will be hiring local high school students (ages 16 and 17) to serve as Student Election Judges for the 2022 General Election. More information is available at https://bouldercounty.gov/student-democracy-program/
