students could be going to school on Election Day under a bill moving through
the state legislature. Kentucky
Republicans and Democrats go to the polls on May 19 to choose their nominees for governor. Schools usually are not in session that day because they are often used for polling places. But after two winter storms dumped several feet of snow on
in the past month, some schools are scrambling to make up the missed days
without eating into the summer vacation. Kentucky
The Senate Education Committee approved a bill Monday that would let schools be in session on Election Day if the district does not use any facilities for polling places. State Sen. David Givens says a handful of districts meet those requirements.
House lawmakers are considering similar legislation.
