Public Notice: 2022 Primary Election workers needed

For more information about becoming a poll worker, please call The Adair Co Clerk's Office at 270-384-2801 or send an email to Please respond as soon as possible.

By Lisa Greer, Adair County Clerk

The Adair County Board of elections needs your help with the May 2022 Primary Election.

When we submitted our election plan for Adair County last year, we submitted 16 precinct locations open as normal. But in order to have those precincts open we have to have the workers. We cannot run elections without Poll Workers. They are the most fundamental piece of the process. Finding workers can not wait until the last minute. If we are short on election workers for the 2022 Primary, we may have to change our Election Plan and this decision will need to be done by the end of February.

To operate all 16 precincts, we will need 80 workers. We need four workers plus alternate workers at each precinct. Alternates come in at last minute to replace the poll workers in case of sickness, etc. Each worker and alternate have to be trained and ready to work.

We encourage registered voters of Adair County to serve their community as poll workers.

Poll workers will be paid for Election day and for attending a two hour election school training. With the new HB574 Bill, most voters are eligible to work as poll workers, regardless of political affiliation.

Respectfully, Lisa Greer, Adair County Clerk, and The Adair County Board of Elections
