In 2016, I was an observer for the DFL at one of the Minneapolis polls. It's a weird job, and sort of awkward. The roll has the ability to "challenge" voters. But we were instructed to make sure that procedures were followed and everyone got to vote. I did not have a Republican counterpart.
But I was so impressed with the head judge. One of the ways you could vote is if someone came and vouched for you--i.e. knew where you lived.
And there were a couple times where this judge went with a person, verified where they lived personally, and came back just so they could vote.
Anyway, I thought he was great and so today I finally signed up to be an election judge.
