What are the requirements to be eligible to vote in Kentucky state and local elections?

In order to vote under Kentucky law, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least eighteen (18) years of age on Election Day, and a resident of Kentucky for at least twenty-eight (28) days prior to the election. You cannot register to vote if you are a convicted felon, unless you have had your civil rights restored. You also cannot register to vote if you have been declared mentally incompetent by a court of law, and had your voting rights removed, or if you claim the right to vote anywhere outside the state of Kentucky.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
