Current Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes spoke about Election Day and why it’s so important for Kentuckians to vote despite it not being a Presidential election year, “We have two individuals on the ballot vying for governor – one that got there by 84 votes, another that won his attorney general race by less than 2000.”

A reminder, Fayette County Public Schools are closed Tuesday for voting.

Polls will be open until 6 p.m. Tuesday. Anyone in line by 6 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

Acceptable types of I.D.’s are: being a personal acquaintance of a precinct officer, driver’s license, social security card, a county-issued ID card approved by the State Board of Elections, U.S government-issued ID, state-issued ID with picture, credit card, and another form of ID with both a picture and signature.
