Q What amount of compensation can the city pay to its poll workers?

A Pursuant to Section 23-15-229, municipal poll workers are to be paid a minimum of $75.00 for working the polls on election day, and the municipal governing authorities have the discretion to pay poll managers up to an additional $25.00. In addition, the manager who acts as the officer delivering election day materials from the courthouse to the polling place is entitled to an additional $10.00, and the manager who acts as returning officer is also entitled to an additional $10.00. So if a municipal poll worker works the polls on election day and also acts as a delivering and returning manager, the maximum amount of compensation he could receive is $120.00.
