Adams opens poll worker volunteer portal

By Miranda Combs

Frankfort, KY - Secretary of State Michael Adams has unveiled an easy way for Kentucky voters to register as poll workers for November's general election.

The Poll Worker Volunteer Portal is now available at 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."
