BOWLING GREEN—Susie Oberdahlhoff, Pike County clerk announced the her office of Pike County has successfully secured $10,000 in a nonprofit grant to fund safe and secure elections.
The grant, awarded by the nonpartisan Center for Tech and Civic Life, helped the county clerk’s office administer elections during this past year in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
“This grant program enabled us to prepare for and operate safe elections by investing in priorities that would otherwise have been challenging to accomplish,” said Oberdahlhoff. “Some of the areas of help were poll worker training, personal protective equipment for poll workers and voters and securely opening an adequate number of voting sites.”
