Kentucky voters can vote by mail-in ballots to maintain social distancing

BOWLING GREEN,  Ky.-The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we do things, and voting is no exception.

The primary election was moved to June 23. While there will be one polling location open on that day, most voters will vote by mail. On May 22, the state will open a portal where anyone can request that a ballot be sent by mail.

Drop off locations for the ballots will be set up in the county. Voters will also be able to drop off ballots at the Warren County Courthouse.

The only in-person precinct will be available at Phil Moore Park. Warren County Clerk Lynette Yates said even though times are different now, everyone needs to vote.

“Even during a pandemic, this is the time that you can vote. We’re trying to make it as easy as possible. I understand that this is not a norm, but nothing we’re doing right now is normal. We’re trying to make this work the best that we can work,” Yates said.

From June 8 through June 22, there will be in office voting at the Warren County Courthouse. It will either be outside, or in the foyer with social distancing precautions in place.
