FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The secretary of state’s office is urging Kentuckians to sign up as precinct election officers for the May 20 primary election.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says about 15,000 Kentuckians are needed to help administer the election.

To serve as a precinct election officer, someone must be 18 on or before Nov. 4, 2014 and be a qualified voter. Those wanting to serve cannot have changed their party affiliation one year prior to their appointment.

And they cannot be a candidate or be the spouse, parent, sibling or child of a candidate.

Duties include arranging polling locations with necessary information and equipment, processing voters and completing paperwork for the county clerk’s office.

Each precinct must have four election officers. Those officers are paid at least $60 per election.
