KY Secretary of State suing over absentee ballot process

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is suing over the absentee ballot process for military and overseas voters.

Grimes says Kentucky law currently doesn’t provide enough time for those overseas to vote and is inconsistent with federal requirements.

She says the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Voting Act requires states to send the ballot 45 days before an election while Kentucky law allows candidates in special elections to file 28 days before the vote.
