Early Voting with Excuse begins in KY's 17 May 2016 primary
By Alison Lundergan Grimes, KY Secretary of State
FRANKFORT, KY (April 6, 2016) - Eligible voters may begin casting mail-in absentee ballots in Kentucky's May 17, 2016, Primary Election, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes announced today.
"I encourage all registered voters who are eligible and need to vote by mail to request an application now so their ballot can be submitted in plenty of time before the May Primary," said Grimes, Kentucky's chief election official.
Individuals who may be eligible to vote by mail-in absentee ballot include:
"Voting is a right, but it is also a responsibility," said Grimes. "The foundation of our democracy depends on every eligible voter's participation."
The identities of absentee voters will not be disclosed until after the election as part of a law Grimes championed. In the past, absentee ballot applications were subject to open records requests, making absentee voters particularly susceptible to attempts to buy their votes.
Individuals who do not qualify to vote by mail-in absentee ballot may still be eligible to vote in person prior to Election Day beginning no later than May 3, or 12 working days (which may include Saturdays) prior to the election.
Persons with questions about absentee voting should contact their county clerk or the State Board of Elections atelect.ky.gov. For details about the Address Confidentiality Program, please visit sos.ky.gov.
