Secretary of State
Special Elections Voter Registration Deadline
(Frankfort, KY) If citizens who reside within House District 63 and 72 want to participate in the upcoming special elections for those vacancies in office, they are facing a very quick deadline to register to vote according to Kentucky’s chief election official, Secretary of State Trey Grayson.
Kentuckians only have a few more days to sign up before registration books close. The deadline to register is Monday, December 10th. County Clerks’ offices in Kenton, Bath, Bourbon, and Nicholas Counties will accept voter registration cards until the close of business that day. A postmark of December 10th is also required for all mail-in voter registration applications. Registration cards can be obtained over the internet at www.vote.ky.gov/register.
“I encourage all citizens who have not already done so, to register to vote today,” stated Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson. “We hope to see all eligible voters exercising their constitutional right to vote on Jan 8, 2008.”
Also, minors who are 17 years old but will be 18 years old on or before the special election are eligible to register and entitled to vote in the upcoming election.
If citizens are unsure whether they have registered to vote or uncertain as to where they will vote, they can view all of that information online through the Voter Information Center (VIC). The VIC will tell voters where they are registered to vote, the location of their polling site, and their political affiliation. It also provides links to elected representatives and driving directions from the voter’s home to his or her polling location. VIC can be accessed at www.vote.ky.gov/vic.
To obtain a list of county clerks and other voter registration sites in your area, contact the Kentucky State Board of Elections at (502) 573-7100 or via the web at www.vote.ky.gov/.
