Persons wishing to be poll workers for the November general election now have an easy way to do so.
Secretary of State Michael Adams has unveiled the Poll Worker Volunteer Portal. Persons interested in working the polls for the election can simply go www.govoteky.com. Once the simple online application is complete, the portal passes the application on to the volunteer’s county clerk, who then will contact the volunteer.
Election officials say the number of poll workers in Kentucky is at a critical low. The availability of poll workers will dictate how many polling locations are available on election day. If a county doesn’t have enough poll workers, it limits the county clerk’s ability to offer in-person voting.
Again, persons interested in serving as poll workers for the upcoming November election can go to www.govoteky.com and click on ‘Kentucky Needs Poll Workers’
