Voter Registration
  • Voters have until December 31, 2021 to change their parties and still be able to vote in the May 17, 2022 Primary.  If you are registered and change your party after the deadline you will NOT be able to vote in May.

  • Voters can register to vote for the first time
  • The last day to register to vote or make corrections to an already existing voter before the May Primary is Monday April 18, 2022.

Registering to Vote

  • Any Kentucky resident that will be 18 years of age by election day (usually the first Tuesday in November) and has not been convicted of a felony, may register to vote by completing a voter registration card and submitting it to the County Clerk's office.
  • If you prefer, a form can be mailed to you,  you may pick up a form at the County Clerk's office or you can go govoteky.com and register online.
  • To insure your eligibility to vote, be sure to notify the County Clerk's office whenever you change your name or address. All changes must be made no later than 28 days prior to an election.  Voter's can pick up a card and fill it out at our office, go online, change their information when they renew or get a new driver's license, or call and we will mail you a voter registration card to fill out.

Having Voting Rights Restored

As a citizen of Kentucky, you lose the right to vote and hold public office if you are convicted of a felony. However, the Kentucky Constitution gives the Governor the option to restore these civil rights. On December 12, 2019, Governor Andy Beshear issued an Executive Order automatically restoring the right to vote and the right to hold public office for Kentuckians who have been convicted of non-violent felonies and who have satisfied their term of supervised release and/or their sentence of incarceration.
If you were convicted of a non-violent felony, your right to vote and hold a political office is automatically restored when you complete your sentence.  At civilrightsrestoration.ky.gov you can check to see if your rights were restored.
 
Kentuckians convicted of the felonies listed below do not receive automatic restoration of their civil rights:
  • Treason;
  • Bribery in an election;
  • A violent offense defined in KRS 439.3401;
  • Any offense under KRS Chapter 507 or KRS Chapter 507A;
  • Any assault, as defined in KRS 508.020 or KRS 508.040,
  • Strangulation in the first degree, as defined in KRS 508.170;
  • Human trafficking, as defined in KRS 529.100;
  • Any felony conviction in another state or in the federal system.
If you are convicted of one of these felonies, your rights will not be automatically restored under Governor Beshear's Executive Order.  However, you may still apply for restoration of your civil rights through the process set forth in the Department of Corrections regulations:
