DuPage’s Election Day Judge’s Salary Up to $250 – Chicago Tribune
DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek announced that the salary increase for election judges will increase from $130 to $250 starting with the June 28 primary.
“This salary increase is long overdue,” Kaczmarek said in a press release. “It was necessary years before the ongoing pandemic and labor shortage. Our election judges were asking for a raise even in 2005, when I was an election watchdog. I am happy that the electoral judges are finally getting the salary they deserve.
Judges work around 15 hours on election day, with an extra hour the previous afternoon to set up polling stations, according to the statement. Pay will go from around $8 an hour to over $15.

Pace has launched a pilot expansion of the Pace Naperville-Aurora On Demand service in which the current service area will be doubled, expanding eastward to serve more of the Naperville area.
The zone will extend the eastern boundary to Naper Boulevard, bounded on the north by Ferry Road and Warrenville Road and on the south by Gartner Road and Ogden Avenue.
Among the destinations in the new area are downtown Naperville and the Riverwalk; North Central College; corporate campuses like BP, Nokia and BMO Harris; and Edward Hospital.
The new area will also improve the area’s overall transit network by providing new connections to Pace Routes 714 and 722 and to Metra’s BNSF line at Naperville Metra Station, according to a news release.
The expanded Naperville-Aurora On Demand Pace will continue to have timed transfers to the Fox Valley Mall and operate weekday service between 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m., according to the release. Service in the expanded area will be operated using multiple vehicles to provide additional capacity.
