The Kendall County Clerk’s Office is hosting a “School for Election Judges” program on Sept. 24 at Whitetail Ridge Golf Club.
According to Clerk Debbie Gillette, the clerk’s office is required by law to provide judges with such education every two years.
The two sessions will be held on Monday, Sept. 24, in the banquet room at Whitetail Ridge Golf Club at 7671 Clubhouse Drive in Yorkville.
This year, the office is offering two sessions that day: at 2 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m. Sign-in for the 2 p.m. class starts at 1 p.m. and sign-in for the 6:30 p.m. class starts at 5:30 p.m., according to Gillette.
Those interested in participating should RSVP to 630-553-4105 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Judges will learn at the sessions about any procedural changes enacted by law that will impact the upcoming 2018 elections, to be held on Nov. 6.
A representative from the State Board of Elections will be presenting the class, which will cover a variety of subjects, including the basic operation of the election equipment used in Kendall County, according to Gillette.
Attendance and participation in the class will meet the Judge’s Certification standards, Gillette said.
A certified Kendall County Judge of Election will be reimbursed $150 for the complete day of service, she said.
