Affiliation Required for Judges & Clerks; Not for Inspector; Judge & Clerk must be registered to different political parties. County Election Board appoints Judge & Clerk from lists of nominees provided by 2 political parties with highest number of registered voters in state. Every 4 years, county central committees of those 2 parties submit a list of 3 nominees for each precinct to county election board. County election board is confined to the list of nominees submitted by either party & appoints 1 member of each precinct election board from each party every 4 years. If no list submitted, then county election board appoints 1 member of precinct election board from ranks of said party.
