LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — There will be more in-person voting locations this election than the June primary in Kentucky, but most counties will have less than in past years.

Each county clerk was required to send their plan to Secretary Michael Adams for approval.

Fayette County's plan from Clerk Don Blevins has six voting precincts. While that is more than the one location we had in June, Secretary Adams told LEX 18 he is concerned about that number of locations.

As of this weekend, the plan has not received final approval. Secretary Adams did tweet that 642 people in Fayette County have signed up to be poll workers.

On Friday, he tweeted that he had a conversation with Fayette County Schools Superintendent Manny Caulk. As of right now, no Fayette County schools are being used as a polling location.
