Kentucky sets date for new election

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Kentucky now has a new date for this year’s primary election. June 23 is the new date as of right now.

Kentucky’s Board of Elections changed the date of the election because of the COVID-19 epidemic. The new date means a lot of work for local county clerks such as setting up polling places since the usual sites may already be booked.

But even with a major undertaking like moving an election, Warren County Clerk Lynette Yates says in some ways, it’s business as usual.

Although the primary election is being planned as a traditional “polling place” election, is it possible mail-in ballots could be used as a last resort.
