The briefing by Adams and Hancock, cosponsored by  the American Association of University Women, BluegrassF.O.R.R. Frankfort and the Frankfort/Franklin Chapter of the N.A.A.C.P., will be followed by a question and answer session.

No pre-registration is required.

Responding to Together Frankfort’s invitation to participate in the Sept. 3 online meeting, Adams said, “Regardless of their politics, I want all Kentucky voters to feel included in our process, and to vote. I’m grateful to Together Frankfort for helping me raise awareness about changes in our election rules, so that no voter is left behind.”

Together Frankfort encourages civic organizations in other counties and regions to reach out to voters, to their county clerk’s office, and to the Secretary of State to provide training and information about the 2020 November election

Kentucky’s General Election season provides for both absentee voting and in-person voting. The dual option process enables voters to select their preferred method of voting, with an emphasis on safety of the voters and the poll workers.
