Washington Tech students serve as election judges
Fifteen students from Washington Technology Magnet School served as election judges for Ramsey County on Nov. 4. It was the second year that Washington students have participated as election judges.

The school’s curriculum coordinator Michelle Leba first arranged for the participation after reading a news article about Johnson High School students being election judges. Washington students volunteered as part of WEB, a student leadership program, and the National Honor Society. View photos.
