Voting in Kentucky is a relatively easy process as long as you know the basics. The first step is to register to vote. Once you've registered to vote, you'll be ready to use the following information to answer any questions you have about voting in Kentucky.

Kentucky Voting Information

The polls will be open on Election Day from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and you must arrive at your polling location between those times in order to vote. To be eligible to vote, you must show some form of personal identification. The most common form of personal identification used is a driver's license, but a social security card, credit card, or other form of ID with both your name and picture are acceptable substitutions.

Where to Vote in Kentucky

If you live in Jefferson County, you can find your precinct and polling location online through Voter Connection. If you live outside of Jefferson County, you can find your polling location by calling your County Clerk's office.

Kentucky Absentee Voting

If you are unable to make it to the polls to vote on Election Day, then you'll want to make sure and apply for an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots are awarded for a number of reasons and allow the voter to either vote at a voting machine within two weeks before the election or to vote by paper ballot through mail. To determine if you qualify for Kentucky absentee voting, contact your County Clerk's office.
