Vote !!

Your Vote Counts button It is your civic duty to vote in local, state, and national elections. If you are not very computer literate, you may find it a formidable and unnerving task, but, it is something that anyone can do. And it starts when you got registered!

The deadline to register online to vote in the 2020 Primary Election is May 26, 2020, no later than 4:00 p.m. local time.

The 2020 Primary election is June 23, 2020.
NOTE: The primary election has been rescheduled because of the Coronavirus.
 Convicted of a felony? Have the Right to Vote?  Read abouit Executive Order 2019-003 here. Under Kentucky's Constitution, any Kentuckian convicted of a felony loses certain civil rights, including the right to vote and the right to hold public office. The Kentucky Constitution gives the Governor the discretion to restore these civil rights.

On December 12, 2019, Governor Andy Beshear issued an Executive Order that automatically restored the right to vote and the right to hold public office to Kentuckians who were convicted of non-violent felonies under Kentucky law and who have repaid their debt to society by completing their sentences. Governor Beshear's Executive Order also provides that, going forward, the right to vote and to hold public office are immediately restored to any Kentuckian who was convicted of a non-violent felony under Kentucky law upon completion of his or her sentence.

Learn about Restoration of Civil Rights BUT THERE'S MUCH MORE on this web page!!

 Voting Using eSlate  Fayette County uses eSlate voting machines. Here is a brief (4:42) video that will walk you through the eSlate voting process. And if you still need help, the voting officers at your voting precint site will be happy to give you a hands-on demonstration!

Note: Regarding this video, on most laptop and desktop computers, after the video starts, there will be an icon Full Screen Icon in the LOWER RIGHT CORNER of the video screen (your mouse pointer must be in the video frame for the icon to appear) — click on this to go full screen (the full screen is automatic on the smart phones we've tested — results may vary for tablet devices). The Esc (escape) key returns you to normal view.
