Voter Empowerment | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Voter Empowerment

Just one more week of voting left! Vote, Share and Volunteer.

Caitlin Powell Voting 2020 General ElectionWe know KFTC members are super voters who vote in almost every election and we appreciate you all for doing it. And we all know people who haven’t yet voted. With just one week left to vote, it’s time to really spread the word.

Kentuckians have now cast more than 1 million votes, and we’re on track for record turnout if we keep this up!

You can find your local voting locations at www.GoVoteKY.com and you can vote throughout this week, Saturday or even next Monday. Don’t wait until November 3 – the sooner you vote, the better.

If you requested your mailed ballot before the deadline and if it doesn’t arrive by October 28, you can vote in person.

You can volunteer with KFTC and our New Power PAC from the comfort of your home to make calls to voters to mobilize them to vote, or come join us at events like election protection at the polls. All of our events are listed online at www.kftc.org/meetonline

What ID you need to vote

With the passage of SB 2, a photo ID bill earlier this year, and lots of new emergency election processes, there's a lot of uncertainty what ID a voter needs to bring to the polls.

A Kentucky Driver's license is ideal if you have one - the poll workers will be able to scan those and move the lines quickly.

Kentucky Democracy Project Launch! Sign up to Volunteer!

Voter Registration CaitlinThe Kentucky Democracy Project is a new campaign to register, educate and mobilize Kentucky voters to participate in the 2020 election and beyond. As Kentuckians, we can work together to build a healthy democracy where everyone has a voice and a vote. Our focus is on communities often left out of the political decision-making process – lower income communities, people of color, and young people - particularly 170,000 Kentuckians with felonies in their past got back their right to vote.  All Kentuckians should have a voice in elections and should be listened to by elected leaders.

The Kentucky Democracy Project’s work includes online trainings, phone banks to register or mobilize voters, leaving lit pieces on doors, COVID-19 safe voter registration tables and canvassing, and mailings. If you’d like to get involved or learn more, visit www.KentuckyDemocracy.org/volunteer  We have two big trainings next week and lots of upcoming phone banks!

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
