SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan. (KAKE) -

The Sedgwick County Election Commission is in need of workers for this year's November 5th election.

Officials with the Commission say they are still needing to hire 53 more people to have all positions filled. Additionally, they would like 20-25 more people in case fill-in's are needed. 

The commission says their ideal goal is 75 more workers because it makes things run smoother, but training starts on Thursday.

"I do get stressed this close and not having it fully staffed. Because I want all my floor workers to be able have breaks and stuff like that. So it's a struggle, but, you know, I keep it positive and we eventually make it and get it there," said Election Specialist Michelle Waughtal.
