Floyd County Judge-Executive addresses community voting concerns
FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - With the election weeks away, Floyd County Judge-Executive Robbie Williams is working to address concerns voiced by the people of Floyd County.
With the pandemic causing concerns during the primary election, Williams said he hopes to clear things up and see more people at the polls in November.
He said the location changes are one concern with early voting on the table beginning October 13. Early voting will take place at four locations across the county. On election day, 18 precincts will be open for voters.
According to Wiliams, voting during early voting may be the best bet for most people in the county, especially with the new voting machines causing more of a wait time.
“But it is a new process. And a lot of folks, you know, I’m the same way. It takes me a minute or two to pick it up. But, hopefully, we’ll have enough staff there to help folks," Williams said.
Election Day in-person precincts are broken down here.
Absentee ballots can be requested until October 9. Those are available by calling the Floyd County Clerk’s office at (606)886-3816 clicking here.
