KY Elections Board Approves Free Postage for Absentee Ballots
Kentuckians choosing to vote by absentee mail-in balloting in next month’s primary won’t have to pay for postage under a decision by state elections officials Friday.
The State Board of Elections adopted the free postage at a special meeting conducted online, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.
The board also said county clerks will be able to hire temporary help to manage the election during the coronavirus pandemic.
The elections board approved $1 million to $1.2 million to pay postage for voters to return their absentee ballots to county clerks and $1 million to $1.1 million for county clerks to hire staffers for four weeks to help with the election.
