Grayson County Clerk Charlotte Willis addressed the primary election procedures during Tuesday morning’s regular Grayson County Fiscal Court meeting.

Willis said that excused early voting began last Wednesday in her office and that Tuesday of this week was the final day for mail-in voting.

Currently, Grayson County has 22 election precincts, and, officials said, it costs the county around $4-5,000 to operate each of them for an election.

With some counties choosing to reduce their number of precincts as a cost-saving measure, Willis said she could foresee Grayson County following suit in future elections and potentially establishing four or five election centers throughout the county, which would be open to all county residents.

She said this decision would be the determination of the Grayson County Board of Elections.

Given Grayson County’s current number of precincts, anyone interested in being a poll worker is encouraged to contact the Grayson County Clerk’s Office at 270-259-3201. Poll workers receive $120 for the day on which they work.
