Possible new Clark County voting centers

Posted: Updated:

CLARK COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - Clark County is looking at changing procedures on Election Day.

The Board of Elections is talking about consolidating all the polls in the county and having 10 voting centers instead of the 48 traditional sites.

Commissioners said it will save the county more than $70,000 in an average election year and the center would be more conveniently located.

County attorney Barbara Bratcher Haas said that centers will be "in a strategic place, in places where voters would go. They can vote on their lunch hour from work, if they've gone to the mall shopping, where they've gone out to dinner and not have to worry whether or not they're going to make it to their little hometown location before 6 o'clock."

Not everyone is happy with the idea and the Clark County council will still have to vote it through.
