400 Kentuckians use new online absentee ballot system


Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says about 400 Kentuckians in the military or living overseas have used a new system to request and receive absentee ballots electronically for the November elections.


The system is part of a 2013 law that allows military voters or people living abroad to register to vote, update their voter registration or request and receive absentee ballots online. The system is paid for by a $2.2 million federal grant from the Department of Defense.
