LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX `18) — The pandemic has changed nearly everything this election cycle.

The campaign strategy for candidates is completely different than in past elections.

How you cast your ballot is also different.

Never before has a Kentucky general election had so many voters request an absentee ballot. There are also thousands voting in-person before Election Day.

To find out how this may shape the election, we brought in Democratic strategist Matt Erwin and Tres Watson, former communications director for the Kentucky Republican Party, to discuss.
