Hi Kentucky, if you want to vote in the  2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered. If you have a  Kentucky drivers license, you can register online.   If not, you’ll need to print out an application  form and mail it in.

Links to both are at But either way you  register, you need to do it by October 11th.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town, can’t get to  the polls because you’re ill or disabled, or maybe   you want to vote in Kentucky but you go to college  somewhere else, then you can vote absentee.   To do that, you need to fill out a form to request  your ballot from your County Clerk’s office by   October 25th. But the sooner you do it the better,  so you have time for them to get your application,   mail you a ballot, and for you to  mail it back so that it gets to them   no later than November 8th.

Any Kentucky voter can vote early   in person though, from November 3rd through the  5th at an early voting location in your county.   You can find all those locations  and their hours at this link.   Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.  You can look up where you’ll vote at that same   link, and polls are open from 6am to 6pm. You’ll also need to bring a photo ID with you.   A Kentucky drivers license, state ID, passport,  military ID, or student ID all work, but if you   don’t have one of those, you can get a free  photo ID at your Circuit Clerk’s office.   So once you have your plan for how you’re  going to vote, where you need to go,   what time you’re going to vote,  and what ID you’re going to bring,   you just need to follow the plan,  and go vote on November 8th.   If you want to know ahead of time  everything that’s on your ballot,   you can find a sample ballot at so you have time  to research candidates and make your decisions.   You don’t have to vote for everything for  you ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from Congress   to your city council or school board. There are links for everything you need to   register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at

Thank you for voting!
