Philadelphia City Commissioners Raise Wages for Election Board Officials

  • Share on Facebook

Today, 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.

Title Old Pay New Pay
Judges of Election $100 $120
Majority and Minority Inspectors $95 $115
Clerks $95 $115
Machine Inspectors $95 $115
Bilingual Interpreters $75 $95
