Longest Serving Poll Workers Recognized at State Capitol

On Wednesday, December 5, 2018, In a ceremony the first of its kind, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes and bipartisan former Kentucky secretaries of state gathered to recognize hundreds of the Commonwealth’s longest serving poll workers at the State Capitol. Dozens of Kentuckians were honored at the ceremony for having served more than 25 years as a poll worker, including Elizabeth Neal of Powell County who has served since the 1950s. Grimes acknowledged that Kentucky has not been spared from the nationwide trend of poll worker shortages and will ask the General Assembly to allow 16-year-olds to pre-register to vote and to serve as precinct election officials.
