We are responsible for registering voters, keeping the voter registrations up-to-date, providing voting locations, recruiting poll workers for election day, maintaining and securing the voting machines, and providing election results once the election process is complete.

Voter Registration Information

Residents may register to vote if they meet the following requirements:

– You must be a U. S. citizen and a Kentucky resident for at least 28 days.
– You must be 18 years of age by the date of the next General Election which is held on the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November.
– You are eligible to register and vote in the May primary election if you will be 18 before the General Election, but not eligible to vote in
Special Elections.

If you meet the above requirements, you may register to vote by completing a voter registration card and submitting it to the County Clerk’s Office. You may contact the Clerks’ Office and have a card mailed to you or you may download a copy from the State Board of Elections website.

Each voter must designate a party affiliation in order to register to vote. Party designations accepted in Kentucky are Democrat, Republican or Other. Since Kentucky conducts Closed Party Primaries, you must be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in that party’s Primary Election. If you are registered as “Other”, you are eligible to vote for only nonpartisan offices (Judicial, City Commission, School Board) in any Primary Election. You may vote for any candidate in all General Elections.

Note: You may change your political party affiliation at any time after the May Primary but before December 31st to remain eligible to vote in the following Primary Election.
