Beshear, GOP Agree to Mail-In Voting for June Primary

Gov. Andy Beshear opened Kentucky’s primary election to widespread mail-in absentee voting in a move Friday to relax election procedures and protect people amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Allowing registered voters to cast ballots through mailed-in absentee voting stems from a bipartisan agreement between the Democratic governor and Kentucky’s Republican secretary of state.

State elections officials also are working on a plan for limited in-person voting and possible drive-thru voting for the June 23 primary. Kentucky’s registered voters will be notified that they can vote by mail-in absentee balloting.
They will be able to go online to request an absentee ballot.
