Online Absentee Request for the 2020 General Election

There are three ways for Kentucky voters to cast their ballot in the upcoming November election:
  • 1) In-person before Election Day, Oct. 13th - Nov. 2nd.
    By Executive Order, (E.O. 2020-668(3)), in-person voting begins October 13, 2020 and shall be available during regular business hours, and at least four hours on the three Saturdays before November 3, 2020. Voters who feel safe voting in person are encouraged to vote before November 3, 2020, to ensure appropriate social distancing can be maintained.

  • 2) In-person on Election Day.

  • 3) By absentee ballot (return by mail or ballot dropbox)
    By Executive Order, (E.O. 2020-668(1)), all Kentuckians who are concerned about contracting or spreading COVID-19 may vote via absentee ballot for the 2020 general election, consistent with the expanded definition of excused absentee provided in the August 14, 2020 recommendations of Secretary of State Adams.
The deadline to apply online for an Absentee ballot is October 9, 2020, no later than 11:59pmET.

NOTE: The online Portal has been opened early so that you can pre-apply. The ballots are currently being printed, and will be mailed when ready. Mailing will begin in mid to late September. Click here to request an absentee ballot at the state's online portal:
