At their first weekly public meeting for the November 6th General Election, the Philadelphia City Commissioners unanimously approved Chairwoman Lisa Deeley’s motion to raise the pay for Election Board workers by $20 a day.

This marks the first time in generations that the Judges of Election, Majority and Minority Inspectors of Election, Clerks, Machine Inspectors, and Bilingual Interpreters have received a raise.

The additional funds for the raise were appropriated to the City Commissioners in their FY 2019 budget after a vigorous lobbying effort by the Commissioners and help from like-minded members of Council.

Judges of Election will receive $120 up from  $100; Majority and Minority Inspectors $115 up from $95; Clerks $115 up from $95 Machine Inspectors $115 up from $95; and Bilingual Interpreters  $95 up from $75.
