Election Judge Training
Welcome Clerks and Judges!
We offer online election judge training as well as in-person election judge training. I would encourage new election judges to take the in person training as well as some additional equipment training.
Attention all Cass County clerks!

The following election equipment training videos are not required. However, they are very informational and a great refresher!
These are general videos from a variety of entities although the processes are similar they are not exact. The information in these videos is very helpful for all election judges!

- DS200 Pollworker instructions from Jackson Co, AL (some processes differ slightly; i.e. polls close at 8 p.m. in Minnesota and in Cass County we roll up the tape and stick it back inside the machine, our envelopes look and are labeled different and we have a different process for spoiled ballots; it is not necessary to tear the corner of the ballot.
