Grant Funds Boone County Election Upgrades

A grant of $192,000 is coming to the Boone County Clerk’s office to bring  voter lists up to date and provide more training for poll workers and up-to-date technology.  The federal dollars come from the “Help America Vote Act”.  Without this grant, Boone County was considering cutting polling places by 40% for the November election.  Local election authorities qualify for grants based on the number of registered voters and the number of polling places in that county or jurisdiction.
