Absentee Voting Gets Underway

The start of the May 2014 Primary Election is now underway. Eligible voters may now begin casting mail-in absentee ballots for the primary. Individuals who may be eligible to vote by mail-in absentee ballot include: military personnel, their dependents, and overseas citizens; students who temporarily reside outside the county; voters who temporarily reside outside Kentucky; voters who are incarcerated but have not yet been convicted; voters whose employment takes them outside the county for all days and hours the polling place is open; voters of advanced age or who suffer from disability or illness; and voters who are participants in the Secretary of State’s Address Confidentiality Program.

Voters may request an absentee ballot application from their county clerk in person or via telephone, fax, or email. Applications for mail-in absentee ballots must be received by the clerk’s office by no later than May 13, with the completed absentee ballot to be received by the county clerk by 6:00pm local time on Election Day.
