Our priorities for 2020 include:


~  Enacting state legislation to bring sunlight to the redistricting process. Together Frankfort participated in the  Kentucky Fair Maps Coalition , which worked in the 2020 session to enact the Kentucky Fair Maps Act.  Unfortunately, the legislation did not pass, however we will continue to work with Kentucky's League of Women Voters & the Coalition to ensure fair redistricting in Kentucky.


~  Building strong networks on climate change education and action


~  Celebrating the 100th anniversary of woman's suffrage


~  Continuing to address the needs of those marginalized by national and state policies & actions.

​Covid-19 & Kentucky's Elections


Gov. Andy Beshear, along with national & state leaders, has been implementing Kentucky's reopening plan. Together Frankfort's activities will focus on the changes to Kentucky's election cycle & how to continue to ensure voter turnout. 


In March Secretary of State Michael G. Adams formally recommended to Gov. Beshear that the elections scheduled for May be delayed to June 23, 2020. Gov. Beshear agreed. Emergency regulations outline a process to vote by mail, or in person


Together Frankfort commends the bipartisan approach to ensuring the safety & health of Kentucky's citizens. Click here for the June 23 Primary Election plans, which includes both "vote by mail" & in-person voting. 

If voters choose a political registration other than Republican or Democrat or changed political party registration after Dec. 31, the voter cannot vote in Republican or Democrat primaries.
However, the voter may vote in nonpartisan city primaries, which are on the ballot for Frankfort's mayor and city commission races.
