LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– As Kentuckians prepare to vote in the primaries on Tuesday, there are a few things you need to know.

When Can You Vote?

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. (local time) on Election Day.  Persons in line at the polls at 6 p.m. will be allowed to vote. Persons who arrive to the polls after 6 p.m. will not be allowed to vote.

Identification Requirements to Cast a Ballot

Voters can vote without identification if an election officer can identify the voter by personal acquaintance.  Alternatively, voters can identify themselves by providing documentation. Valid forms of identification include:  

  • A motor vehicle operator’s license;
  • A Social Security Card;
  • Any identification card that has been issued by the County and which has been approved in writing by the State Board of Elections;
  • Any identification card with a picture and signature;
  • Any United States government-issued identification card;
  • Any Kentucky state government-issued identification card with picture; or
  • A credit card.

Without an eligible form of identification, a voter is permitted to cast a provisional ballot as a last recourse if a valid ID does not exist or cannot be obtained.  Voters who cast a provisional vote, or want to learn more about provisional votes, should visit the Provisional Voter Information webpage.

VoteRiders has created Kentucky voter ID info cards in English and in Spanish.
