Training Classes

The Jefferson County Clerk’s office is committed to providing our judges with the most comprehensive and up to date information. Therefore, we offer classes for each election. Judges are paid $25 for attending a class.

All new judges are required to attend a session and all returning judges are encouraged to attend as election laws may change from year to year.


Classes are scheduled by our office in advance of each election. Typically, we mail the dates/times/locations of each class to you and let you pick a class to attend based on your schedule.

Most classes have 30 to 40 persons and last approximately 2 hours. We start promptly but are always available after the class for additional questions or topics that may have not been addressed during the session.
