1-6-102. List furnished by precinct committeepersons

Overview of Statute

Within ten days after the precinct caucus in even-numbered years, the committeepersons of each precinct from each major political party must submit a list of recommended election judges to the county chairpersons of their respective political parties. To qualify, a recommended election judge must be a registered elector, reside in the precinct, and affiliate with the political party holding the precinct caucus. If the political party does not employ a county chairperson, the committeepersons must instead submit the list of recommended election judges to the county clerk and recorder. If the political party does not employ a precinct committeeperson, the district captain of the precinct will instead submit the list.
