We are always in need of responsible, registered voters to serve as precinct Election Officers.
An Election Officer is a very important person who works the polls all day on Election Day to ensure that voting is conducted in a fair and orderly manner.
Each precinct is required to have four precinct Election Officers on the day of the election. We recruit registered Democrats and Republicans to fill Election Officer positions per KRS 117.045.
We also accept applications from voters who are registered as non-partisan, (Other, Independent, etc.). These applicants are alternates/back-ups, and may fill vacancies in precincts where we do not have enough Republican or Democratic Election Officers. Our non-partisan Election Officers who serve on election day are placed back on alternate status after the election.
We do not guarantee any polling location, precinct, or area. Once you have taken the Oath of Office, you must be willing to serve where you are needed. We make every effort to place you in the vacancy closest to your home.
Each Election Officer is paid $25 for attending a mandatory training session and $125 per Election Day. Checks are mailed out after the election.
If you are interested in becoming a precinct Election Officer please contact the Clerk’s Office at 270-927-6117 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact your Democratic Board of Elections Chairman, Danny Gray at 270-929-5803 / email@example.com or the Republican Board of Elections Chairman at 904-838-7276 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
