In Marlboro we pay the ballot clerks $10/hour. We do not take out any
deductions; the wages are exempt from FICA. During the day I staff the
polling place with paid workers. They are done when the polls close at 7 PM
and the members of the BCA come in fresh to help with counting. I also get
extra volunteers to help with counting. The BCA members and the extra
counters are not paid.

workers and if so, how much?
