Rockland County Election Poll Workers Awarded a Fifty Percent Raise

Rockland County Election Poll Workers Awarded a Fifty Percent Raise

Mindy Cohn

Election poll workers in Rockland County have been granted a fifty percent raise, resulting in a salary that comes somewhat closer to the rates of neighboring counties. 

Poll workers who previously received $200 per day will be paid $300 going forward. This is on top of the  $25 paid for attending required classes before beginning poll work. 

"Workers at the frontline of democracy deserve to be compensated fairly," Rockland County Legislator Aron Wieder shared with Rockland Daily. "This is something I have been advocating for some time now. These dedicated individuals often man our polling stations from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m., and they deserve more than $200 a day for their patriotic efforts."

While the compensation for Rockland Poll workers received quite the boost, Westchester County pays $350 per day, and Putnam County pays $325. 

Rockland County's website states that poll workers must be 18 years old and registered to vote in either the Democratic or Republican Party. For more information on becoming a poll worker or election inspector, please call the Rockland County Board of Elections at (845) 638-5172.
