Johnson County seeks election workers in anticipation of possible record turnout for general election

Johnson County could see a record turnout in the November general election, and the election office is looking for hundreds of new election workers to help at the polls.

Johnson County Election Commissioner Ronnie Metsker says the office is getting a lot of new voters registering, and predicts the county may have more than 400,000 registered voters for the first time ever heading into the fall general election.

The Johnson County Election Office encourages advance voting to avoid long lines on election day. You can vote in advance by mail, and there will be six advanced voting sites open starting October 24th.
