FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's initial "Voter Registration Week" is under way and officials hope numbers of new voters will reflect its success.
Kentucky took part in the 2004 and 2006 National Voter Registration Weeks, which are only held during federal election cycles. Secretary of State Trey Grayson asked Governor Fletcher to designate the week leading up to the voter registration deadline of October ninth as Kentucky Voter Registration Week. The governor issued the proclamation September 28th.
County Clerks offices throughout Kentucky will accept voter registration cards until the close of business that day. A postmark of October ninth is also required for all mail-in voter registration applications.
---Registration cards may be obtained over the internet at www.sos.ky.gov/register.
