Albany County depends on good citizens who volunteer to work as election judges. On election days, each precinct needs from three to eight judges to work processing and assisting voters. Judges need to be registered voters and must be physically, morally and mentally competent to perform the duties. Judges must not attempt to influence voters or make comments about candidates or political parties.
All judges and members of counting boards are obligated to attend at least one training school for each election. Albany County pays $100 for working an election from 6 a.m. to approximately 8 p.m. or whenever the precinct balances. There is an additional $10 payment for attending a training school.
