Voter Empowerment

Requested your ballot yet? If not, go to www.GoVoteKY.com June 15 deadline

The primary election matters. When we vote, we’re choosing what kind of Kentucky we want to call home.

Most voting in the primary election will be by mail this election so we can keep each other safe. But this process is new, and we need to spread the word about how it works.

Every registered voter in Kentucky is encouraged to vote by mail, and you can request a ballot at www.GoVoteKY.com. This is the easiest way to get a mail-in ballot.  For people having trouble with that website address, here's a direct link.

Go ahead and request your ballot today while you’re thinking about it and encourage others to do the same!

June 15 at 11:59 p.m. is the deadline to request mail ballots.

When you get your ballot, go ahead and fill it out and return it right away.  You can use www.KentuckyElection.org to learn more about candidates and their stances.

How Kentucky's June 23 primary will be different - vote by mail details, etc.

89608945_680814476057872_591141659190755328_nVoting will be a little different this year for the June 23 primary election, with most voting happening by mail. But there are a few different options Kentucky voters have to cast their ballot. 

There will be a link where you can request a ballot at www.GoVoteKY.com starting May 22. You can alternately call your county clerk now to request a mail-in ballot, but that process will have added steps. You can find your county clerk's number at this website. Some county clerk websites also have an online form to request a ballot.

There's a June 15 deadline to request mail ballots. Ballots need to be postmarked no later than June 23 and received by June 26 (but earlier is better!). Postage on ballots is already paid, and there will also be local drop boxes at limited locations if you'd prefer to drop them off rather than mailing them.

KFTZINES by Sabre Semrau

"I love zine-making because anyone can do it. You can have as few supplies as a piece of paper and a pencil and still make an incredible zine that informs, educates, inspires, provokes, entertains, empowers, or otherwise delights your own mind and those of the people you share it with."

Charles Booker Town Hall was a success!

4-28-20 CBooker Town Hall--10On Tuesday night, 160 KFTC members and friends came together for the KFTC Charles Booker Town Hall where Rep Charles Booker talked about his story and his campaign for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Mitch McConnell. KFTC's New Power PAC endorsed Booker earlier this year. 

It was an opportunity for KFTC's statewide issue committees and members as a whole to ask Charles Booker questions and make their own stances known.

It's hard to build community in a time of social distancing, but this was an important and needed space for us to see eachother, laugh together, and build power together.

Charles Booker Town Hall is TONIGHT Online (4/28)

Right now, 182 KFTC members and friends are signed up to come to tonight's Town Hall meeting with Representative Charles Booker, who's running for US Senate.   In this moment, it's clearer than ever Kentuckians need leaders who share our values and put the wellbeing of our communities–no matter the color of our skin or how much money we have–above all else.   With this momentum, electing our vision feels more possible than ever, but it's going to take all of us to get us there.

There's still time to signup and invite your friends to join us too.

At the town hall, we’ll gather together online to hear his story, ask him questions, and find out how we as KFTC members can take action to make a real difference in the June primary, even as we practice social distancing and work to keep our communities safe. Registration is required for this event. Once you register, we'll email you a link with easy instructions to join the call through your computer or phone.

The Town Hall is tonight, April 28 at 7 p.m. EST.
