Sec. of State secures federal funds for new election costs

By Miranda Combs

Frankfort, KY - Secretary of State Michael Adams on Wednesday formalized Kentucky's access to approximately $6 million in federal stimulus funds to relieve increased election costs due to the coronavirus outbreak.

"I thank the President and Congress for providing Kentucky with funds in this time of need to help us plan for a successful 2020 election," Adams said. "I respectfully request that Governor Beshear take the necessary action to provide the required state match of approximately $1.2 million."

Adams also called on the Governor to sign House Bill 351, which includes emergency legislation aimed at providing the State Board of Elections flexibility to adjust election procedures during a declared state of emergency.
