State to allow split shifts for election workers

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii officials are launching a pilot project in this year's election to give a number of polling place workers shorter shifts instead of the 14-hour days they've worked in the past.

Hawaii News Now says the state will allow split shifts at 108 of Oahu's largest polling places.

Election workers are paid $85 for the day. Under the new plan, one worker will take the morning shift and the other will fill the afternoon shift. Participating workers will split the $85 stipend.

Chief state election officer Scott Nago says people have asked for split shifts in the past, but it wasn't allowed before.

Rob Rabideau, who has worked in the last 12 elections, says workers should be paid $95 or $100.

Nago says no increase is taking place.
