From Lisa Greer, Adair County Clerk

There are several ways to vote in the upcoming Kentucky Primary Election, some of them familiar from before the pandemic, and some of them similar to the last couple of years.

Mail in Absentee Voting and Excused In-Person Absentee Voting will only be available to those we meet certain criteria, as explained at

Early Voting will be possible for any registered voter on May 12, 13, and 14 at the Annex Building. Election Day, Tuesday, May 17, 2022, will look much like years past, with voters required to vote in their precinct of record. All precincts will be open from 6amCT to 6pmCT on Election Day.

If you have any questions please contact the Adair County Clerk's Office at 270-384-2801.
