Kentucky’s local election officials have begun submitting plans for how they will conduct in-person voting during the upcoming General Election, but only plans from 26 of the state’s 120 counties have been approved so far.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Andy Beshear and Secretary of State Michael Adams are allowing anyone who wants to cast ballots by mail to do so and no-excuse early voting will be available in every county starting Oct. 13.
But for most counties, it’s still unclear how many in-person polling locations will be available in each county, or where they’ll be.
The State Board of Elections approved plans from the first batch of counties on Tuesday, most of them small and medium-sized counties.
