With the election just around the corner I wanted to pass on some information from the Campbell County Clerk's office. Polls are open on election day from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The clerk's office itself will be closed so our employees can conduct the election.

Under Kentucky law, there are many types of acceptable identification. First of all if your poll worker knows you, no ID is needed at all. The poll worker marks in the roster that they have a personal acquaintance with you.
This is an advertisement. 

If the poll worker doesn't know you an acceptable form of identification is your driver's license or a signed social security card or a signed credit card. Also, any ID with a signature and picture or a state or federal government ID such as a military ID or passport are acceptable.

If you voted at St. Catherine in the past your voting location has been changed to the Highlands Middle School gym. If you voted at First Christian Church on Alexandria Pike in the past your location has been changed to the Woodfill Elementary cafeteria. All other voting locations remain the same.

We work very hard at the Clerk's office to make sure all elections are fair, accurate and efficient. We have 66 precincts with at least 4 poll workers in each one. Months of work goes on behind the scenes to prepare for the election.

If you have any questions please call the Election Office at 292-3885.

Below is a video that shows how the Fort Thomas City Council ballot positions were drawn in August 2016.
