Student Election Judge Program

Program Description

Since its inception in 2000, the Colorado Secretary of State’s Student Election Judges Program has been a great success for students and a bonus for the county election officials and educators who have participated in the program. During the 2012 Presidential Election hundreds of students around the state joined the ranks of adult Election Judges working cooperatively setting up polling locations, processing voters, ballots and tallying the votes cast. The Student Judge experience exposes students to grass roots democracy in their community and enables them to earn money for working the Election.

Ultimately, we hope it motivates these students to become active voters in their communities and election judge resources for future elections.

Program Policy

The State Legislature enacted legislation that will allows Juniors and Seniors in High
School to work at VSPC's as Student Election Judges. State Statute makes the following provisions:

  • Student Election Judges need not be registered electors.
  • Upon approval by their school’s principal or an administrator designated by the principal, Student Election Judges will be appointed by and will serve at the discretion of the local Election Official. School administrators must determine that selected students can reasonably miss school if school is in session.
  • Students should have their own transportation to the VSPC, or must assure the Election Official that they will be dropped off at the by the time they are scheduled to work and picked up when the day’s work is complete.
  • Student Election Judges will assist in checking-in voters at the VSPC, activating voting machines, and assisting electors in casting their ballots.
  • Veteran Election Judges will supervise student Election Judges.
  • Student Election Judges will be compensated for working. Additionally they may receive payment for attending the mandatory Election Judge Class.
  • Student Election Judges can serve as mail ballot or VSPC judges.
  • There are no party affiliation requirements for Student Election Judges


  • Student Election Judges must:
    • Be U.S. citizens by the date of the election at which they are scheduled to work.

    • Be physically and mentally able to perform the duties of an Election Judge.
    • Attend a mandatory Election Judge class prior to each election at which they work.
    • Never have been convicted of election fraud, other election offenses or fraud.
