Primary election will be a bit different on May 17

Kentucky’s primary election will be May 17, but eligible voters may request a mail-in absentee ballot until May 3 by visiting or calling the County Clerk’s Office at 270-927-6117.

Once eligible voters request their ballot it will be mailed to them. Once completed, the ballot may be mailed back to the Clerk’s Office or dropped off in the ballot box located at the office.

In-person excused absentee voters may vote from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., from May 4 until May 11 at the Clerk’s Office.

No-excuse early in-person voting will be May 12 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.; May 13 form 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.; and May 14 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. If you changed your party affiliation after Dec. 31, 2021, you are ineligible to vote in the primary.

In-person Election Day voting will be from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Voting precincts will be active that day, but there will also countywide voting centers at North Hancock and South Hancock elementary schools, as well as Hancock County High School. Any eligible, registered voter may cast a ballot regardless of where they live in the county.
