MAIL-IN BALLOTS:

Mail-in ballots will be available to any registered voter upon request.

This portal is available through October 9 at 11:59 pm ET. After October 9, mail-in ballots cannot be sent to voters without a medical emergency. Mail-in ballots may also be requested by contacting the office of the Woodford County Clerk at 859-873-3421 or 859-873-8005. The General Election ballots will not be mailed until late September.  A dropbox is located inside Woodford County Sheriff's Office. 

 

ELECTION DAY VOTING:

There will be one expanded voting center at Falling Springs Recreation Center and one voting center at the Woodford County Courthouse located on the first floor. These voting centers will be open for voters November 3, 2020, 6:00 am to 6:00 pm on Election Day, as usual. All appropriate precautions consistent with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Kentucky Department for Public health will be taken.

Kentucky's General Election will be administered according to the bi-partisan emergency administrative regulations (31 KAR 4:192E). These regulations provide more voting options than have ever been made available to voters in any other election. Whether a voter chooses to vote at the voting center, courthouse, or vote by secure mail-in ballot using the postage paid envelopes or the ballot drop box located in the courthouse, that voter's health and safety was made first priority.
