Changes at polls cause no issues in Henderson, Owensboro

Local News

(WEHT) – Local voters say they didn’t encounter any problems with the many changes in Tuesday’s Kentucky primary election.

In both Henderson and Daviess County, voters only had one polling place to choose from but did not have to wait in long lines. They were also required to wear face masks, as well as practice social distancing.

The Daviess County clerk says fewer polling places could end up being the way of the future.

“Next year is an off year where there is not an election. I think our legislators will look at how we currently do elections and maybe look at putting together some legislation to change that,” said Daviess County clerk Leslie McCarty.
