(LaPorte, IN) - Poll workers afraid of COVID-19 could be in short supply for the June 2 primary.
So far, LaPorte County Clerk Kathy Chroback says it’s been challenging finding enough poll workers. If they are short on staff, Chroback says poll workers will take on more responsibilities to fill any manpower gaps.
Chroback says there will be 83 polling places or about the same as usual. Right now, it appears more people will be voting by mail to avoid the risk of COVID-19 at the polls.
