Title 21, Chapter 2, Section 213
(a) The board of registrars in each county may appoint deputy
registrars to aid them in the discharge of their duties. The number
of deputy registrars appointed to serve shall be determined by the
board of registrars. Such deputy registrars shall serve without
compensation unless the governing authority of the county, by
resolution, authorizes compensation. In appointing deputy
registrars, the registrars shall select persons who are reasonably
representative of a cross section of significantly identifiable
groups of the communities or areas where they are to serve.
(b) The board of registrars in each county may hire clerical help to
assist them in their duties if the compensation required therefor
has been first approved by the governing authority of the county.
Such additional clerks shall be eligible to be appointed as deputy
registrars for the purpose of registering voters and performing
other duties as may be required, but it shall not be necessary for
such clerks to be electors of the county in which employed.
(c) In every county wherein the registrars do not maintain an office
which is open and staffed during regular business hours, the
registrars shall designate and appoint as chief deputy registrar a
full-time county officer or employee for the purpose of registering
eligible electors and performing other duties as may be required by
the board of registrars. The governing authority of the county
shall provide for the compensation of the chief deputy registrar in
an amount not less than $259.88 per month. The name, business
address, telephone number, and any other pertinent information
relative to the chief deputy registrar shall be forwarded by the
registrars to the Secretary of State's office, where such
information shall be maintained on file.
