Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes encourages Kentucky voters to take advantage of online services available to help them prepare for the November 6, 2012, General 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.

“In order for all eligible Kentuckians to have their voices heard, it’s important that voting information be readily accessible,” said Grimes. “These resources, along with the use of social media to reach more voters, 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 the polling place. 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.

“As a result of congressional redistricting and the March 2nd tornadoes that affected much of Kentucky, voters may be voting in different polling places or for different offices,” said Grimes. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of these tools to avoid any surprises on November 6th.”

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.
