2020 Primary Election Information

Due to the pandemic, our Governor postponed Primary Election Day to June 23, 2020.  Knowing that the majority of our poll workers are in the vulnerable, at-risk category for Covid-19 and the required training is not a possibility at this time, he worked with our Secretary of State to create an Executive Order that changes the manner by which this election will be conducted.  Using the Executive Order, the State Board of Elections created emergency regulations and procedures to follow. 

The postponement, executive order, and regulations were all created so that this election can be safe, secure, and successful.  The following is a summary of how we will conduct the 2020 Primary Election in Henderson County:

  • A post card will be sent out from the State Board of Elections to all registered voters informing them of the changes and how to get a ballot.  (please make sure your voter registration address is correct by going to or calling us to check). The last day to register to vote is May 26, 2020.
  • All registered voters should request a ballot be mailed to your address in order to vote. The ballot can be mailed back to my office, postmarked no later than June 23, 2020 (a returned postage paid envelope will be included) or dropped off in our secure ballot drop box, no later than June 23, 6:00 pm.  The ballot drop box is located inside the courthouse, outside the County Clerk’s Office, and under video surveillance.  You can request a ballot by:
  • Online:         or
  • Phone: (270)826-3906    
  • The last day to request a ballot using the online portal is June 15, 2020.   
  • June 16-22, 2020, a voter may request to pick up a ballot from the County Clerk’s Office by calling 270-826-3906
  • One polling location-inside the courthouse, will be open to provide an in-person, appointment option for anyone who can’t vote by mail, beginning June 8-22.  Courthouse voting appointments are from 8:30 am-4 pm weekdays and from 9 am-4 on Saturday, June 13, 2020.  You may call 270-826-3906 to make an appointment.
  • Election Day, in-person voting will be available at one polling location at the Henderson County High School.  You may call 270-826-3906 to make an appointment.  
  • All mailed ballot envelopes will go through a signature match for security before being counted.
