19:45-7. The compensation of the members of the several county boards shall be no less than the minimum salary and no more than the maximum salary as follows:

MinimumMaximum
County PopulationSalarySalary

Over 550,000$8,700$17,600

300,000 to 550,000$6,000$15,000

150,000 to 300,000$4,500$12,000

120,000 to 150,000$3,700$11,000

Under 120,000$3,200$10,500

provided, however, that any increases herein granted shall be effected only upon the approval of the governing body in the county affected.

The compensation fixed and determined under any of the foregoing classifications shall include all services rendered by any county board in conducting all elections, and in connection with any recount or recheck after any such election.

The members of the county board in counties other than counties of the first class and in counties of the first class not having a superintendent of elections who shall be elected as chairman and secretary thereof and who shall perform the duties of chairman and secretary thereof shall each receive an additional compensation of one-half of the compensation of the individual members of the board.

The commissioner of registration in a county of the first class having a superintendent of elections shall receive such salary per annum as the governing body of such county may by resolution authorize, but not less than $10,000, for services performed as such commissioner of registration, and the commissioner of registration in a county of the second class having a superintendent of elections shall receive such salary per annum as the governing body of such county may by resolution authorize, but not less than $2,500 for services performed as such commissioner of registration, and for such services performed by a commissioner of registration in a county not having a superintendent of elections additional compensation shall be paid to such commissioner in an amount equal to 50% of his salary as member and secretary of the county board. In counties of the second class and in counties of the first class not having a superintendent of elections where a member of the county board serves as commissioner of registration, he shall receive no additional compensation for the performance of his duties as such commissioner unless he shall devote his full time to the performance of his duties as member of the county board, secretary thereof, and commissioner of registration. "Full time" as here used means such time as is duly required of employees in the office of the county board. Notwithstanding the above, the commissioner of registration in a county having a superintendent of elections, upon the approval of the governing body of the county, shall receive a salary not less than the maximum which the secretary of a county board of elections in a county of the same class, not having a superintendent of elections, would receive for performing the duties of secretary and commissioner of registration. This minimum does not reduce the current base salary for any superintendent who also serves as commissioner of registration.
