Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes encourages Kentucky voters to take advantage of online services available to help them prepare for the May 19, 2015, Primary Election. Through the Secretary of State’s website, www.sos.ky.gov, and the State Board of Elections’ website, www.elect.ky.gov, citizens can verify their polling place, check the races in which they are eligible to vote and research candidates.

“Voting information is readily accessible so that all eligible Kentuckians may have their voices heard on Election Day,” said Grimes. “Our online resources make it easier to prepare and make informed voting decisions on May 19th.”

The Voter Information Center (VIC) contains registration information, polling place locations and driving directions from voters’ registered addresses to their polling places. VIC is accessible from many mobile devices. Through cooperation with county clerks across the Commonwealth and election services providers Harp Enterprises and Kentuckiana Election Services, sample ballots are also available online.

In addition, qualified military and overseas voters may use Kentucky’s new online portal to request and receive their absentee ballots. The portal also enables those voters to register to vote and update their voter registration for future elections online. The deadline to register to vote in the May 19 Primary Election was April 20, 2015.

Information about individual candidates who filed with the Secretary of State’s office is also available on the office’s website. The information included in the database is provided by the candidates and may include photographs, email addresses and links to campaign websites.

For additional election information, visit the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ky.gov, follow @kysecofstate on Twitter, and like Kentucky Office of the Secretary of State on Facebook.
