Beshear order allows absentee voting by mail in primary

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Gov. Andy Beshear has signed an order allowing Kentucky residents to submit mail-in absentee ballots in the upcoming primary election.

The governor’s office said Friday that state elections officials also are working on a plan for limited in-person voting and possible drive-thru voting. The primary is set for June 23.

The governor’s order allowing absentee mail-in voting came a day after Secretary of State Michael Adams offered his recommendations on how to proceed with the primary in midst of a public health crisis.

Beshear’s order outlines procedures to be in place for the primary.
