Request your ballot at Today! | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Request your ballot at Today!

Juan GomezKFTC and allies have been fighting for the Election Kentucky Deserves, making our case to the Governor, Secretary of State and State Board of Elections that Kentucky can choose to defend both our democracy and the health of all Kentuckians.

With a series of decisions over the last week, we’ve won much of that vision including universal access to voting by mail, weeks of in-person voting before election day including Saturdays, and drop boxes for ballots.
Here are some highlights about how this year’s election will work

  • All Kentuckians concerned about COVID-19 may request a ballot at starting now
  • October 9 is the deadline to request your mail in ballot through
  • Requested ballots won’t get printed and mailed to you until September 15, so don’t worry if it doesn’t arrive right away
  • You should fill out your mail ballot completely, including signing and sealing both envelopes and not removing any flaps.
  • You can mail in your completed ballot or drop it off at a secure drop box in your county or at the county clerk’s office.
  • The deadline to mail in or drop off a completed ballot is November 3, but do it as early as possible.
  • Early in-person voting (for people who didn’t vote by mail) begins October 13 including at least 4 hours on 3 Saturdays leading up to election day.
  • Counties may reduce the number of sites for in-person voting November 3, but there will be at least one countywide site. 
  • Voters who are unable to get photo ID because of COVID-19 will be allowed to vote.

Please request your ballot today and spread the word!

KFTC is also hosting a Voter Registration Webinar this Thursday at 7pm ET (6pm CT) which will include a more detailed look into the voting process this year. Please register and join us. 

We’ll also be meeting with local county clerks to talk about the election process we want on the county level. If you’d like to be part of a meeting with your county clerk, please contact your local chapter organizer.
