In-person voting options for the June 23 primary election

There are options for voting in person before or on Election Day (Tuesday, June 23) if you were unable to request a mail-in absentee ballot by the June 15 deadline.

First, if you were able to request a ballot, return it as soon as possible. Read the directions on your ballot carefully and follow all the instructions including signing both envelopes (this is important – your vote will not count if the envelopes are missing signatures). Mail it back (it is pre-addressed with postage paid) as soon as possible but it must be postmarked no later than June 23 and received by your county clerk by June 26. Or you can hand deliver it to the county clerk, usually to their courthouse office, no later than June 23.

If you requested but haven't yet received your ballot, or mailed it back in and want to make sure it's been received, you can check the status of your ballot here. This system is a little new and has a few problems, though. You have to enter your name exactly how it appears on your voter registration on the first page. If you get a "request does not exist" response at the end, go back to the beginning and type your name exactly how it appears on that last page. For Fayette County voters, your ballot request date will show accurately on here, but other dates won't show up. They're working on the system to improve it now.

There are additionally ways to vote in person in each county by appointment before Election Day or at a limited number of voting locations on Election Day (usually just one per county). Your local county clerk can give you more information about that. Allow for the possibility of long lines if you plan to voter in person on Election Day, and wear a mask.

You can use to learn more about candidates and their stances.
