Voter Registration Deadline MONDAY

From KFTC:

There are only a few days left to register to vote in the May primary election!
Primary Voter Registration
To be eligible to vote in the May Primary Election your voter registration form must be completed at your local County Clerk's office or mailed and postmarked by Monday, April 20.
Not yet registered or need to update your registration?
Visit your local County Clerk's office or download a voter registration card and mail it in by April 20. For answers to common voter registration questions please see “Voter FAQs” below or visit KFTC's website.

Many KFTC chapters have scheduled voter registration outreach events leading up to the deadline, so contact your local KFTC organizer to see how you can pitch in. 
Voter FAQs:
  • How can I check if I am registered to vote and what party I am registered with?
  • Where do I register?
  • When are the Primary Election and the General Election?
    • Primary Election Day is May 19 and the General Election Day is November 3
  • Can I update my political party, address, and/or name?
    • YES! For name and address changes, complete a voter registration form and submit by April 20. For political party changes please read below:
      • Kentucky has closed party primary elections. This means you can only vote for candidates that are running within the party you selected to register with when completing your voter registration form.
      • The deadline for Kentucky voters to change their political party for the 2015 Primary Election was on or before December 31, 2014. If you are not registered with the party you cast your vote for during the Primary Election you forfeit the right to vote in either party's Primary. However, if you are registering as a new Kentucky voter this rule does not pertain to you. To find where you are currently registered and what party you are registered as, visit the Voter Information Center here.
  • How old do I have to be?
    • You must be 18 years of age on or before November 3, 2015. 17-year-olds may register and vote in the May Primary as long as they will turn 18 before November 3, 2014
