Early In-Person Voting Begins October 13th
Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County Clerk Kevin Alexander discussed possible voting options with the Edmonson Voice for the upcoming 2020 General Election, where the current plan includes all county polling places open to the public.
Details for the plan include:
1. Absentee ballot by mail
VOTER ID NOW REQUIRED:
Alexander also is reminding all voters that Senate Bill 2 was signed into law on July 15th, which requires all Kentucky voters to present a proper photo I.D. Secretary Adams issued a statement that answered frequently asked questions.
"While non-photo ID (or personal acquaintance with the poll worker) previously was required to vote, the ID presented will now need to include a photo of the voter to be valid as defined in KRS 117.375(12), as amended," one portion stated.
"The most common form of a valid photo ID is your driver’s license. Other examples of acceptable ID (as long as they include your name and photo) are: Military ID, College ID, or Kentucky government ID. A voter’s identity still can be confirmed by personal acquaintance with an election official, but now the election official must sign an affirmation."
According to Secretary Adams, Kentuckians who were unable to get a driver’s licenses or photo ID due to the pandemic because their clerk’s office was closed, or because they were afraid of exposing themselves to COVID-19, can sign a document explaining this concern and cast their ballot.
Any further voting questions can be directed to the Edmonson County Clerk's Office at 270-597-2624.
