Citizens can register online to be poll workers in November
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Kentucky residents who want to be poll workers in the November general election can now register online.
According to Secretary of State Michael Adams, the Poll Worker Volunteer Portal is available at www.govoteky.com. The portal passes an application on to the volunteer’s county clerk, who then will contact the volunteer.
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.
“Just as we’ve made it easy to vote, we’ve made it easy to serve your community by volunteering to work the polls,” Adams said. “Whatever your politics, we need your help so we can offer in-person voting, and also so we can ask less of our elderly poll workers who usually volunteer.”
