Steps Taken to Get Absentee Ballots to Kentucky Military Voters

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says Kentucky’s county clerks started sending absentee ballots to military and other eligible voters last week. Grimes says the process of sending, filling out and returning an absentee ballot can take several weeks for some active duty military members.

Kentucky’s Secretary of State recently returned from a trip to the Middle East to help improve military voting.  Grimes says she wants to assure military voters in the Commonwealth that their ballots are actually counted.

More information about resources for military and overseas voters can be obtained at the website of the Kentucky Secretary of State

For all voters, the deadline to apply for a mail-in absentee ballot is October 30th.
