Election Judge Information


In June of this year, Gov. Pritzker signed Public Act 101-0642 into law, designating November 3, 2020 as Election Day, a state holiday.  As a result of this, EPCHS will be closed on this day.  Additionally, it creates an opportunity for students who meet the qualifications listed below to serve as an Election Judge on that day.


  • Be a high school senior or junior
  • Maintain at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale
  • Be a U.S. citizen by the next election
  • Able to speak, read and write English fluently
  • Successfully complete an election judge training course conducted by the Clerk's office
