Gathering Paper Ballots on Election Day with Ranked Choice Voting
Polls are open from 6 AM to 7 PM. The first hour is generally slow and not worth it. We account a full day as 8 AM to 6 PM, but that can be flexible. Based on past experience, the average number of ballots collected should be about 10 per hour. It can range from 5 to 20 per hour, depending on time and location.
For a 10-hour day, base pay of $100 plus $1 per completed ballot turned in. A $20 bonus for turning in a hundred or more. For a 5-10 hour stint, base pay of $10 hour plus $1 per completed ballot turned in. For less than five hours, $1 per completed ballot turned in. For income tax purposes, you report this as self-employment pay; we pay the full amount without deductions for social security, etc. If you use this as a fund-raiser for an organization and therefore assign the pay to them, then it never counts on your income.
