Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes encourages Kentucky voters to take advantage of online services available to help them prepare for the May 20 Primary Election. Through the Secretary of State’s website, www.sos.ky.gov, citizens can verify their polling place, check the races in which they are eligible to vote, and research candidates.

“It’s important that voting information be readily accessible in order that all eligible Kentuckians may have their voices heard,” said Grimes. “Online resources – including social media – make it easier to prepare and make an informed decision on Election Day.”

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.

“Following last year’s legislative redistricting, many Kentucky voters may be voting in different precincts, and for different offices,” said Grimes. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of these tools to avoid any surprises on Election Day.”

Information about individual candidates who filed with the Secretary of State’s office is also available online. 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.
