Elections are the cornerstone of our constitutional republic. On Nov. 8, nearly 2 million Kentuckians made their voices heard by casting ballots at thousands of different polling locations scattered across our commonwealth.
Kentucky law requires county clerks and their staffs to be the caretakers of the precious voting process. They dedicate thousands of hours of planning, preparation and training to ensure the election process is accurate and efficient.
Sheriffs, county attorneys, judge-executives and jailers show their commitment to this process by supporting clerks’ efforts with much-needed manpower and resources.
But this process could not be successful without thousands of poll workers who are the stewards of the election process.
On Election Day, their day begins way before sunrise and doesn’t end until way after sunset. The next scheduled election is over a year away, but the planning for it started when the last vote was counted last Tuesday night.
I encourage you to plan now to thank your poll workers when you next cast a ballot.
Boone County Clerk
