Questions About Primary Training For The Upcoming Election

I have been a Precinct Chair since '08. I thought as part of our mandated training that we were compensated for the training mid-term elections.

However, when I received my election letter I was informed that the Sec. of State has mandated that the training sessions do not compensate for the training.

My questions are

Has this always been the case and I was mistaken about being paid for training since '08?

If this is a new mandate then

When did this change?

Did the Legislator vote for this?


If they didn't vote for this then Can the Sec. of State mandate these changes


Also I noticed that we will only be paid a whopping $8 per hour. I suppose this is the big plan to keep people wanting to service their communities. Pay them as little as possible. Perhaps in the next few years it will totally be set up as a voluntary position.

Sheesh, even the Presiding Judge during the general election makes a dollar more than the A.J and clerks.
