Deadline closes in for changing political party registration

If you’re a registered voter in Kentucky and you want to change your party affiliation before the 2015 elections, you must do so before the end of this year.

The regular voter registration deadline is April 20, but years ago, the legislature established Dec. 31 of the year prior to the election as the date for voters to decide which party’s primary they want to vote in on the primary day, which next year is May 19.

Voters should complete their registration cards at Crittenden County Clerk Carolyn Byford's office no later than noon on New Year's Eve.
