If you are able to meet the above requirements, you may register to vote by completing a voter registration card and submitting it to the County Clerk's office. If you prefer, A FORM CAN BE MAILED TO YOU (by requesting it), you can download a form from this web site, or you may pick up a form at the County Clerk's office.
In order to vote, you must have completed a voter registration card and be registered at least 28 days prior to an election. You may register through the following sources:
Kentucky recognizes three political distinctions and you must choose a political party when registering to vote. These parties are: Democrat Party, Republican Party, and Other (designate political organization)*. Because Kentucky has closed party primary elections, you must register as a DEMOCRAT or REPUBLICAN to be eligible to vote in that party's May primary election. If you register as OTHER, you will not be eligible to vote in the Democrat or Republican party primaries but you may vote for all nonpartisan offices, such as judicial, school board and urban county council primaries. All eligible voters can vote in the November general election.
After your registration has been processed, you will be sent a notification of your polling place (precinct name and voting location). On election day, the polls are open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., local time. You are eligible to vote as long as you are in line by 6 p.m.
NOTE: To insure your eligibility to vote, be sure to notify the County Clerk's office whenever you change your name or address. All changes must be made no later than 28 days prior to an election. If you are unable to vote on election day, absentee ballots may be requested from the County Clerk's office.
