Beshear, Sec. of State Adams Reach Election Compromise

Kentucky voters concerned about being at risk of contracting COVID-19 will be able to cast mail-in ballots under a bipartisan agreement reached by the state’s governor and secretary of state.

Rules for the November general election also include three weeks of in-person early voting, including Saturdays, to prevent a crush of Election Day voting, according to the plan unveiled Friday by Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear and Republican Secretary of State Michael Adams.

Beshear signed an executive order outlining procedures in the agreement, which he said was “easy to reach” with the state’s chief election officer.
