If you have your ballot but haven't mailed it back yet, please send it as soon as possible.  Sign and seal both envelopes (this is important - your vote will not count if the envelopes are missing signatures), read directions carefully, and get it postmarked June 23 at the latest.  Postage on ballots is already paid. There also will be local drop boxes at limited locations if you'd prefer to drop off your ballot (your county clerk can tell you where).

Debbie Graner voted yesterday!

Debbie GranerKFTC Leader Debbie Graner of Frankfort, voted for the first time yesterday after getting her right to vote back! Debbie fought hard to restore voting rights and because of her work and others, 152,000 people with felonies in their past can vote this election who could not vote last election.

People with felonies in their past who want to know if they got their right to vote back can visit CivilRightsResoration.ky.gov to check, then they can register normally.

If you have questions, call Dave Newton at 859-420-8919.
