About This Event
Safeguarding the electoral process is one of the most important roles of our government. Every American qualified to vote has a fundamental right to cast a ballot. Election judges work to guarantee that right by ensuring that Americans qualified to vote are allowed to cast a ballot, and are allowed to cast that ballot only once. Election judges serve as the eyes and ears of a polling place to enforce the election laws and ensure that the electoral process is free and fair.
In Cook County, every precinct should have Republican and Democrat election judges, and election judges of either party should be allowed to exercise their responsibilities. But for many reasons, there seldom are the right number of Republican election judges, and as a whole, there simply are not enough residents interested in becoming election judges.
Responsibility In Government and Freedom Initiative NOW have organized this event to turn the tide on the election judge problem in Cook County. Recruiting and training active and retired law enforcement officers to become election judges is not only part of the solution, but it may be the single biggest step that we can take to improve election integrity in Cook County.
Training is open to any active or retired Chicago area law enforcement officer. Importantly, the training is free for law enforcement officers, and parking also will be covered for those active or retired law enforcement officers attending.
Training will be conducted in a workshop format beginning at 12:30 until 4:00 pm. Doors open at 12:00 noon.
A private VIP dinner will conclude the night (separate VIP tickets are required and cost $250).
