Simpson County Clerk Jolene Thurman recently announced information regarding voting in the Kentucky Primary Election on June 23.

Voters have the option to vote in-person or by mail.

The primary election, which was originally scheduled for May 19, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The State Board of Elections will mail a postcard to every registered Kentucky voter. This post card will have instructions on how to apply for an absentee mail in ballot and all voters will be eligible to vote absentee.

All voters are eligible to vote by mail. Voters can request a ballot by mail on the state’s secure online portal, which is expected to be available by May 22, or by calling the county clerk’s office at 270-586-8161.

Early in-person voting will be available to all voters June 8-2 during normal business hours by appointment.

Voters will be able to vote in person on Election Day, June 23; however, under the guidance of the State Board of Elections, all voting will take place at one centralized location. Voting for all precincts will take place at the Simpson County Courthouse on the square. No other precinct locations will be used during this election, according to Thurman.

Thurman said an abundance of caution will be used and all CDC guidelines on social distancing will be enforced.

More information about voting is posted on the Jolene Thurman Simpson County Clerk Facebook page. Any changes related to the primary election will also be posted on the same page.
