New Jersey’s Poll Workers Will See a Pay Raise for the November 2021 General Election

Ridgewood NJ, after mounting pressure from legislative leaders,  Governor Phil Murphy today signed Executive Order No. 266, which will increase the pay for New Jersey’s poll workers from $200 to $300 for Election Day, and increase pay during the early voting period by a commensurate hourly rate, to incentivize poll worker participation during the early voting period as well as Election Day in this year’s general election. Today’s Order also waives the restriction that limits poll workers to serving only within the county in which they reside.

“Our poll workers are an essential component of our elections in ensuring our voters are able to exercise their right to vote,” said Governor Murphy. “Early voting coupled with an increase in pay for poll workers, is critical to maintain the accessibility, security, and safety of this upcoming election.”

  1. Quite a few changes this year….polling centers will be open on Monday and those books that we’ve signed for decades go away in favor of tablets.

    This could get interesting.

  2. How do I apply for this job?

  3. Everyone’s pay is going up. Look what they pay at Burger King.
