VOTE!!

Kentucky's 2022 general election is November 8, 2022. Two lessons we learned from 2020:  (1) time passes quickly (2) our votes count!

 

Start talking about it now!!  Encourage your friends and relatives to register at http://govoteky.com and check their personalized voting information (including the two proposed constitutional amendments on their ballot)  at Kentucky Voting Information (vote411.org). Voters will be required to present a document issued by the federal, state, or local government, or public/private college containing the voter's name and photo.  If you don't already have a photo ID, Kentucky is currently offering free voter ID cards at any Driver Licensing Regional Office.  Check their website for requirements. Last day to register to vote for the general election is October 11, 2022.

Section Title

When we vote, we’re choosing what kind of Kentucky we want to call home. Kentucky's general election in November includes elections for the U.S. Senate, U.S. House, state legislature and many county, city, and judicial elections.  Every election matters.

Check your status and your voter registration.

 

October 11, 2022 4:00 pm local time is the general election voter registration deadline.  Please take a moment to check your voter registration at www.GoVoteKY.com to make sure that you are registered to vote where you’re living now. Ask your friends and family to check their voter registrations too.  

200,000 Kentuckians with felonies in their past won the right to vote again a few years ago, but largely have not been informed that they can now vote. You can find out if you or a friend of yours recently got your right to vote back at Check Your Status - Civil Rights Restoration (kentucky.gov)
