Opportunities for High School Students

The state of Maryland permits students 16 years of age who are not registered voters to serve as Election Judges.


The minor (who is not a registered voter) must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Local Election board that he or she meets all of the other qualifications for registration in the county.

Registration & Status

They will complete the registration process, but be held in pending status until they reach 18 (the legal age to vote).

Student Independent Service Learning

Students may elect to earn Student Independent Service Learning hours in lieu of payment.

Work Hours

If selected to serve, Student Judges only work 12 hours, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
