Bill to eliminate early voting filed in state legislature

A bill that would eliminate early in-person voting in Kentucky has been filed in the state legislature.

Early voting was instituted in Kentucky in 2020, and has been popular among voters.

According to the Kentucky Secretary of State’s Office, more than 260,000 voters utilized early in-person voting in last year’s November general election.

The Secretary of State’s Office shows that more than 1,500 voters utilized early in-person voting in Russell County last year.

The bill was sent to the state and local government committee earlier this week.
