Minnesota Statute 204B.195 allows individuals to take time off from work, without penalty or reduction in pay*, to serve as election judges on election day(s). A 20-day written notice requesting to be absent from work for this purpose must be submitted to the employer.
*Without a reduction in pay' means you will earn what you would have at work that day. Generally, this means that your employer has the right to deduct the amount you made being an election judge from your normal day. 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.
NEW IN 2020 - Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, no witnesses are required.
Minnesota Election Law requires every voter to show their blank ballot to a witness prior to filling it out. The same witness must also fully complete the witness section on the ballot return signature envelope. Any registered voter in the state can act as a witness. Additional witnesses that do not have a state residency requirement are a Notary Public, County, City or Town Clerk, College Registrar, Judicial Officer, or any other official who can administer an oath.
