With voters being staggered in new, bigger venues to help with social distancing, early voters were caught in longer lines than they had expected in Kentucky on Tuesday, Oct. 13th.

The November election is inching closer and as of Tuesday, people in Kentucky can now vote in the 2020 election.


In Henderson County, the Chase Fulcher Archery Training Center was opened as a new venue for early voters, due to there being more room too socially distance.


“I wanted to come out early so I can get my vote in,” said voter Pearl Banks, who was second in line at the Henderson County Courthouse. “I didn’t want to mail in because I wanted to make sure my vote was counted."

And for those concerned about Covid-19, booths are spaced six-feet apart, hand sanitizer is available and ballots are on the tables ready to be handed out.

“I think everything is working perfectly. Everybody’s maintaining their spacing. Everyone’s wearing their mask,” said Timothy Roberts, who voted at the Chase Fulcher Archery Training Center in Henderson. “Everything seems to be going OK.”


Election officials say before walking through the doors, voters will need to have a face mask and photo ID in hand. An expired driver’s license will also be accepted.


“You don’t need a voter ID, just an ID, drivers license. I do know the circuit clerk is going to be offering free IDS for voting,” said Casey Phillips, elections deputy clerk in Henderson County.


If you requested a mail-in-ballot, you can also drop them off at the early voting sites as the county clerk’s office.
