Poll Workers Needed for Upcoming General Election

Kentucky needs poll workers for the November General Election, according to Secretary of State Michael Adams.

Adams said yesterday he is like most Kentuckians and wants things to get back to normal…including elections. Adams said     “I want more robust in-person voting options than we had in June, but that is only possible if Kentuckians step up and volunteer to be poll workers.”

A typical Kentucky election entails approximately 3,700 voting locations and 15,000 poll workers. One of the reasons that June’s primary offered so few voting locations is that so few Kentuckians volunteered to be poll workers. By law, each precinct voting location must have four poll workers, evenly split between registered Democrats and Republicans.

Adams encourages all Kentucky voters to contact their local Democratic or Republican committees, or their county clerk, to volunteer for election service.
