Serve as an Election Judge to Earn Additional Administrative Leave

State employees historically have shown a strong commitment to public service and helping the citizens of Maryland. Therefore, I am calling on you to consider serving as an election judge. Your assistance during the General Election will ensure that Marylanders have access to polling stations and are able to vote without undue delays. 

The General Election is on November 8, 2022. Early voting will be held for eight days beginning on Thursday, October 27, through Thursday, November 3:  

As you know, the GENERAL ELECTION DAY is a State holiday for permanent State employees. As an incentive to serve, I am authorizing sixteen (16) hours of administrative leave for permanent State employees who serve as election judges on Election Day.  This means if you choose to serve as an election judge on the General Election Day, you will receive pay for the holiday AND an additional 16 hours of administrative leave that will be added to your leave balance.  Additionally, if you choose to serve during early voting, for each day of your service you will receive 16 hours of administrative leave.

While the General Election Day is not a paid holiday for State contractual employees, I am authorizing State contractual employees who serve as election judges to receive sixteen (16) hours of administrative leave for each day of their service. 
If you are interested in participating in this worthwhile endeavor, please go to the SBE website and sign-up to become an election judge. 

Submit any questions to or call 410-269-2840.  

Your participation helps to ensure that all Marylanders have full, equal and unfettered access to vote!
