Thanks to all who offered input about the municipal elections pricing. Steve has directed not to vary from our standard pricing if possible.
In response to some of your comments:
Norma – the contract rate is $5.50 per pollworker trained in Maryland. We have to establish a minimum, or we will be training 2 at a time. Steve suggests the standard $1,000 per day plus expenses. We will encourage the municipalities to combine training where possible, if they with to economize.
Don – thanks for your thoughts. Yes, the L&A price is probably too low. Again, Steve directs us to the $1,000 per day. Your thoughts about timing and locations are good food for thought.
Tari – some municipalities in Maryland run shorter election days – 9-5 (so wonderful!). We were setting an hourly rate to accommodate.
Irene – you’re right – we aren’t giving ourselves enough time. Don elaborated well on the subject.
