Election judges in Iroquois County are being rewarded with a pay increase. The County Board (Tuesday) approved paying the judges $125 dollars for their Election Day time -- plus an additional $20 dollars if they attend a training class and $15 dollars for attending the class.
The pay hike will cost the county about $4,000 per election.
County Clerk Lisa Fancher said the judges haven’t received a pay increase in over 10 years. The increase takes effect with the November 2018 General Election.
