what's new in Kentucky voting since 2020
There are some new voting laws in Kentucky! Here's what you need to know. First, the deadline to request an absentee ballot has changed. All absentee ballot requests must be received 14 days before election day (one week earlier than in previous elections). Second, early voting is now available to all Kentucky voters! Voters may vote in-person absentee on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday before an election. This is available to all voters, whereas in past elections, voters had to have a specific excuse to cast their ballot early.

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
