New Kentucky election law signed by governor

A bill signed by Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear makes changes to Kentucky’s election laws.

A few of the notable changes are listed below.

  • Permanent creation of voting supercenters. These are voting locations in a county that anyone can go to, regardless of precinct. In Russell County, during the November General Election, South Kentucky RECC and the LEVEE in Jamestown served as voting supercenters.
  • Three days of early in-person voting, which will be the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday before Election Day.
  • Online absentee ballot request portal
  • Absentee ballot dropboxes
  • Retaining the signature cure process to allow voters the ability to correct signature issues on absentee ballots

The bill also makes it easier to clean up the state’s voter rolls for people who have moved to another state.
