Check-in judge Vicki Glenn directs a voter to where she can obtain her ballot in November. Frederick County election officials say a shortage of election judges for the June 24 primary is critical.

County election officials are still short on election judges with three weeks to go until the primaries, and they are calling the situation critical.

Election deputy director Noreen Schultz said the county has about 550 judges signed up and is seeking at least 40 more before the June 24 primary.
