LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The general election is November 3, and before we know it, the early voting period will open in Kentucky.

For a complete list of candidates, head to our Who's on the Ballot section.

How can I vote early?

Beginning Oct. 13, three weeks before the election, every work day between Oct. 13 and Election Day, and every Saturday for at least four hours, every county clerk will provide a location for safe in-person voting.

Early voting is not absentee voting – anyone can vote early for any reason. 

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.
