The process of selecting election judges for the August 14th primary election in Winona County is nearing completion. Winona County Auditor-Treasurer Sue Rivers says the selection of individual polling place judges is still in the hands of each county township and the city of Winona.
The process starts with each of the political parties supplying a list of prospective judges of their choosing to the Secretary of State's office for review. Those lists are then returned to the Auditor-Treasurer's Office and given to each of the townships and the City of Winona which make the final selections.
Rivers told Winona Radio News once the final list of judges is determined the judges will undergo training sessions in the first week of August. The county and city holds separate training sessions.
The judges will be selected to monitor the August 14th primary elections in 31 county precincts and 16 City of Winona precincts. Some townships share the same polling place. Rivers says many of the chosen judges will have had experience monitoring previous elections.
