Today is the last day for Kentuckians to request an absentee ballot for the upcoming primary election.
The coronavirus pandemic is changing the way America votes. Instead of walking two blocks to the local elementary school on June 23, folks in my neighborhood and across the entire city of Louisville can only vote in person at the Kentucky Fair and Expo Center. To have your voice heard and avoid long lines, folks around the state can visit GoVoteKy.com to request an absentee ballot.
It takes maybe five minutes to complete the request online. Once you receive your ballot in the mail, it will take maybe five more minutes to fill in the bubbles, sign your name twice and seal the return envelope.
For registered voters who still wish to cast ballots in person, each county will be limited to only one polling location. Check with your local county clerk to find out exactly where. To prevent Election Day problems, early voting has begun in the city of Louisville. You can vote in-person at the fairgrounds Monday-Friday this week from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by using Gates 2 & 4 on Crittenden Drive or Gate 6 on Preston Highway.
