Registering to vote is easy and convenient! The following requirements must be met in order to register:
• You must be a U.S. Citizen and a Kentucky resident for a minimum of 28 days. • You must be 18 years of age by the date of the next general election (usually the first Tuesday in November). You are eligible to vote in the May primary election if you will be 18 by the November general election.
• You must have not been convicted of a felony. If you have been convicted of a felony, your civil rights must have been restored in order to be eligible to vote.
• You must not have been judged mentally incompetent in a court of law.
• You must not claim the right to vote anywhere outside of Kentucky.
If you meet the above requirements, you may register to vote by completing a voter registration card and submitting it to the County Clerk’s office. If you prefer, A FORM CAN BE MAILED TO YOU, or you may pick up a form at the County Clerk’s office.
