Absentee & Election Day Voting Info High School, College & Study Abroad Students

Young Minnesotans can get involved even before they are old enough to vote!


16- and 17-year-old Minnesotans can submit a voter registration form, and have their registration take effect on their 18th birthday. Minnesota is a national leader in youth engagement, and getting young people to think of themselves as future voters is a big part of that.


In Minnesota, 16- and 17-year-old students can work as election judge trainees. You'll take the day off of school, receive training, and be paid for your work. It's a great way to learn about elections and voting, and earn cash at the same time!

2024 Election Judge Application City of Minnetonka Beach

Who can apply

You must be eligible to vote in Minnesota and able to read, write and speak English. Students 16 and 17 years-old can be election judge trainees.

There are restrictions on having relatives serve together as election judges. A relative is defined as a spouse, parent, stepparent, child, stepchild, sibling, or stepsibling.

Relatives cannot serve together in the same precinct at the same time. In addition, relatives of a candidate, and anyone who temporarily or permanently lives in the same house as a candidate, cannot serve in the precinct where the candidate is on the ballot.

Candidates cannot serve in a precinct where they are on the ballot.


You can choose to volunteer or be paid. Wages vary by city.

More experienced election judges, such as Head Judges, usually earn more than entry level election judges.

Student trainees must be paid no less than two-thirds of the minimum wage.

Time commitment


You must attend a required training that will be roughly two hours in length. Many classes are in the evenings. There is an extra hour requirement for the Presidential Nomination Primary (PNP) Election judges.


Work days are the primary and general elections which vary in number each election year. A smaller workforce is usually needed for the primary. In some cases, you can ask to only work the general election in November.


A typical schedule on Election Day is from 6:00 a.m. to around 9:00 p.m. In some cases, you can ask to work a half-day.

Right to time off from work to serve

Your employer is required to give you time off from work to be an election judge without a reduction in pay. To qualify, you must:

  1. Notify your employer in writing at least 20 days in advance of Election Day.
  2. Attach a copy of your schedule and pay rate form to your written notice. The schedule and pay rate will be provided by the jurisdiction that hires you as an election judge.

"Without a reduction in pay" means you get to earn at least the same amount you would have, had you gone to work that day. In practice, this means your employer can ask you to turn over the amount you earn as an election judge during hours you would have normally been scheduled to work, or your employer can deduct that amount from your normal pay.

You can voluntarily take a vacation day to be fully paid by your employer and receive the judge salary you earn as extra income. An employer cannot force you to take vacation or any other form of paid leave.

You can give your employer this memo to employers which explains your right to receive time off to serve as an election judge.

High school student trainees

16 and 17-year-old students can work as election judge trainees, receive training, and be paid for their work. It’s a great way to learn about elections and voting, and earn cash at the same time!

You cannot be asked to work past 10:00 p.m. You will be assigned the same duties as other judges, with the exception of tasks requiring party affiliation. You will need to attend and complete the same training as other judges.

To qualify, you must be 16 or 17 on or before Election Day, be a U.S. citizen in good academic standing at a Minnesota high school (or home schooled), and get permission from your parents and your school.


Help America Vote Act

The Federal Help America Vote Act was passed to improve access to voting for all eligible voters.  One specific requirement of the act is to provide voting equipment that allows voters with a disability to vote privately and independently.  In Minnesota that is possible with a ballot marking devise called the AutoMark.  Voters with disabilities can use this ballot marking devise in city hall to vote absentee or on election day.  Voters with visual disabilities can mark their ballot privately using a headset to hear the candidate or ballot question choices.
