April 18 is deadline to register to vote in Primary Election
FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 23, 2016) — More than 10,000 Kentuckians have registered to vote or updated their registration using GoVoteKY.com, the commonwealth’s new online voter registration system.
“GoVoteKY.com publicly launched last week and is already a huge success,” said Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. “Over 10,000 people have used the site to register to vote or update their information. And anyone can use it — we’ve seen users from the age of 18 to 98.”
More than 500 new college-age registrants have used GoVoteKY.com ahead of the April 18 deadline to register to vote for the May 17 Primary Election.
“Kentuckians are realizing just how simple and easy it is to register on GoVoteKY.com. There are no lines. Go online,” Grimes said.
Grimes officially launched the portal last week at a news conference at the Capitol, and then embarked on an aggressive social media campaign and statewide GoVoteKY.com Tour beginning at Northern Kentucky University. The GoVoteKY.com Tour will be at the University of Louisville on March 31.
