Deadline to register to vote Monday

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes urges voters who have recently updated their voter registration information, including their name or address, to verify that the changes have been processed.

“Having up-to-date registration information is an important step in making sure you’re eligible to vote,” said Grimes, Kentucky’s chief election official. “I urge all voters to verify that their information is correct so there are no surprises on Election Day.”

Notices are mailed to voters to confirm changes to voter registration information. Anyone who has made changes but did not receive a notice should check the Voter Information Center or contact their county clerk to make sure the application has been processed.

Monday, Oct. 5 is the deadline to make changes to voter registration information before the Nov. 3 General Election. County clerks’ offices throughout Kentucky will accept voter registration cards until the close of business on Monday. Mail-in voter registration applications must be postmarked by that date.
