Precinct is not the place for volunteers to swap jobs

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Sep 04, 2012

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> I was a volunteer at a precinct during the primary election. I signed up to work in one area, but when I arrived, people were switching sections. They wanted to work in another section because of the difference in what they were paid. Can't they publish the pay scale for the different jobs ahead of time so people know where they want to work without changing on Election Day?</p>
<p><strong>Answer</strong>: You can find the pay rates on the state Office of Elections' website. Go to <a href="http://hawaii.gov/elections">hawaii.gov/elections</a> and click on &quot;volunteers&quot; on the right.</p>
