                            CHAPTER 34-S.F.No. 1099 
                  An act relating to elections; permitting election 
                  judges to serve outside the county where they reside 
                  in certain cases; amending Minnesota Statutes 1994, 
                  section 204B.19, subdivision 1. 
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 204B.19, 
        subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
           Subdivision 1.  [INDIVIDUALS QUALIFIED TO BE ELECTION 
        JUDGES.] Except as provided in subdivision 6, any individual who 
        is eligible to vote in an election precinct is qualified to be 
        appointed as an election judge for that precinct subject to this 
        section.  If the files of the appointing authority do not 
        contain sufficient voters within a precinct who are qualified 
        and willing to serve as election judges, election judges may be 
        appointed who reside in another precinct in the same 
        municipality, or for school district elections, in the same 
        school district, whether or not the precinct where they reside 
        is in the same county as the precinct where they will serve.  If 
        there are not sufficient voters within the municipality or 
        school district who are qualified and willing to serve as 
        election judges, election judges may be appointed who reside in 
        the county where the precinct is located.
