Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes encourages Kentucky voters to take advantage of online services available to help them prepare for the May 22nd Primary Election. Through the State Board of Elections' website, citizens can verify their polling place and the races in which they are eligible to vote. Candidate information is available on the Secretary of State’s website.

The Voter Information Center (VIC) on the State Board of Elections’ website, elect.ky.gov, contains information regarding voters’ party registration, eligibility to vote in partisan primaries, polling locations, and driving directions from registered addresses to polling locations. The 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.

Voters can find information about individual candidates who filed with the Secretary of State through a database on the Secretary of State’s website, sos.ky.gov. The information included in the database is provided by candidates and may include photographs, email addresses and links to campaign websites.

“Convenient access to voting information is important to ensuring Kentuckians are involved in and educated about the election process,” said Grimes, the Commonwealth’s Chief Election Official and Chair of the State Board of Elections. “And researching in advance the races in which you are eligible to vote and your polling location will help avoid confusion on Election Day. Polling locations may have changed for various reasons, including Congressional redistricting and tornado damage, so it is important to verify this information before heading to the polls.”
