Payments are set to resume later this week for election-day workers who occupied roles such as supervisors, polling station assistants and voting location assistants.

The Electoral Office of Jamaica (EOJ) said it commenced payment to the majority of workers who served in the recent local government election at the end of March.

They included presiding officers, poll clerks, polling station security assistants (PSSA) and indoor agents.

The EOJ says it continues to process payments for other categories of workers and suppliers, including caterers, hoteliers, proprietors, haulage contractors and transportation providers.

Payments are primarily being done through remittance entities.

EOJ says election-day workers will be notified of their payment arrangement.
