DC Motivates Poll Chiefs Through Performance Bonus
Washington, DC is implementing a groundbreaking incentive system for it's poll workers. The district provided precinct captains with "report cards" that grade them on eight criteria, including opening/closing time, result/paperwork return, and other election day responsibilities. This innovative model of accountability and motivation was said to have had a big impact in last November's elections, and may catch on elsewhere in 2012. See below for the rest of the article, via Samuel Derheimer for Electionline.
District of Columbia offers performance bonus to poll workers
Bonus pay earned through election day performance and additional trainingBy Samuel Derheimer On November 2, 2010, I earned $300 from the District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics (DCBOEE). Just over half my hefty haul — $160 — was my base pay for serving as a precinct captain, the chief Election Day worker for poll sites in D.C. A couple weeks ago, I learned I had earned an additional $140 in performance pay. Under a new program, D.C. handed out up to $140 in bonuses to precinct captains based on their performance on eight Election Day tasks. Accompanying the bonus was a report card detailing how we did on each task and whether we had earned the bonus: $10 or $20 per task. I was part of 30 percent of captains to earn ’em all (and so could proudly face Doug Chapin at work the next day). The bonus program was a response to a particularly troubled 2010 primary election in D.C. The 2010 elections were a bit of an Elections perfect storm here in our nation’s capital — granted, it was a self-imposed perfect storm, the result of the “Omnibus Election Reform Act of 2009.” D.C. introduced two new styles voting machines, a DRE and an optical scan machine. The city also introduced a new electronic pollbooks and offered election-day registration for the first time. And turnout was high due to the hotly contested mayoral race. Both voters and poll workers had to navigate the primary on a full precinct’s worth of new equipment and procedures.
