Election Day is just around the corner, and it’s important that everyone knows what to do. Although this round of voting will not determine the President, this race is still very important and everyone able should cast their votes. If you are voting for the first time, or even if you have already voted before, it can be a bit confusing.

First things first, read a voter guide or go to this aggregator to access candidates’ websites and positions on a variety of issues. It may seem complicated to decide whom to vote for, but a little reading makes it simple.

After that, you should figure out where your polling place is. Everyone in Kentucky has a set polling place – find yours here.

CivicLex has partnered with LexTran and Spin Bikes to make sure that everyone is able to get to their voting stations. LexTran will be free, and Spin Bikes will cost only two dollars if you use the code “SPINTOTHEPOLLS.”

In Kentucky, if a voter shows up to their polling place without a state-approved ID they will have to sign an oath that they meet all of the qualifications to vote. However, poll workers prefer that everyone brings their identification. A photo is not required – a Social Security card or credit card are considered valid forms of ID.

After that, the process is simple. Just vote for whoever you think will do the best at the job they are running for. Then wait a while, and sit on the edge of your seat to see if your vote helped your candidate win.

No matter what, your vote counts! So get to the polls on November 6th, then wear your “I voted” sticker proudly.

Polls will be open from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
