      RELATES TO: KRS

117.055(2), 117.345(2)

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY:

KRS 117.055(2)

      NECESSITY, FUNCTION,

AND CONFORMITY: The State Board of Elections shall not remit to a county the

expenses of an election for any precinct containing less than 350 registered

voters unless the county has received prior approval from the State Board of

Elections. This administrative regulation is necessary to set forth under what

circumstances the State Board of Elections shall grant approval for a precinct

containing less than 350 registered voters.

 

      Section 1. The State

Board of Elections shall approve the establishment of a precinct containing

less than 350 registered voters by a county board of elections if the county

board submits to the state board a written request for approval that

demonstrates either of the following:

      (1) That combining

the subject precinct with an adjoining precinct will create an undue hardship

on the voters of the subject precinct because of geographic impediments in the

subject precinct or the distance from the polling place in the subject precinct

to the closest polling place in an adjoining precinct; or

      (2) That combining

the subject precinct with an adjoining precinct would create an undue hardship

on the voters of the precinct because fifty (50) percent or more of the voters

in the subject precinct are physically disabled or elderly.

 

      Section 2. A written

request for approval under Section 1 of this administrative regulation shall be

accompanied by supportive evidence which may include a map illustrating the

difficulty of combining the subject precinct with an adjoining precinct due to

geographic impediments or distance.

 

      Section 3. Nothing

in this administrative regulation shall impair or affect the requirement that

the county board of elections establish precincts so that no boundary of a

precinct crosses a boundary set forth in KRS 117.055(1). (21 Ky.R. 3087; Am. 22
