Edmonson Voice Report:
Edmonson County Clerk Kevin M. Alexander announced that the Edmonson County Clerk's Office will begin in-person voting starting tomorrow, October 25th.
"As with every other county in our state, we begin the six-day, excused voting period tomorrow" said Clerk Alexander. "To vote on these days, you must have a valid excuse, per the state."
Hours for excused early voting remain constant with regular office hours. Therefore, excused, early voting days will be October 25th-27th, and October 30th-November 1st. There is no excused early voting on Saturday, October 28th. The list of excused reasons are as follows:
The three days of no-excuse, early voting are set for Thursday-Saturday, November 2nd-4th.
"The three-day, no-excuse voting days will have special hours for our office, and those are usually well- attended" said the clerk. "We extend our hours to 4:00 PM on both Thursday and Saturday for voting only."
Clerk Alexander said he is optimistic of a good turnout this election.
"We've had several mail-in absentee requests, and today (October 24th) is actually the last day to request a ballot by mail" Clerk Alexander noted, but "it seems like more people are wanting to vote in-person again. I think that's wonderful. At the end of the day, we just encourage everyone to vote."
As a reminder, a form of identification is now required to vote. Should anyone have questions related to the election, call the office at 270-597-2624, or they may be sent via email to Kevin.Alexander@ky.gov.
