Additional Voting Options

In Person Voting

To allow voters flexibility, the Commonwealth is offering several ways for Kentuckians to vote in person.

  1. Voters may still vote in person at their polling location.
  2. Voters may vote during an earlier voting period beginning June 8, 2020, or
  3. Voters may make an appointment to vote in person if they wish to avoid large crowds.
Mail In Voting
  1. Voters will be allowed to participate in the primary using an absentee ballot. Due to COVID-19 any voter may opt to vote absentee based on “medical emergency”.
  2. Absentee ballot requests and ballots do not need to be notarized for the primary election.
  3. Absentee ballots must be received by 6:00pm local time, or, the same time the polling location would close. However, ballots postmarked by Election Day (June 23, 2020) and arriving within three (3) days of the election will count.
