November 2 – Election Day
Mail-in Absentee Ballot Process
Unlike 2020, voters must have a qualifying reason to vote by mail-in absentee ballot. This method of voting is not available to the general public.
Eligible voters must request their ballot via the State Board of Elections secure portal located at govoteky.com. Voters unable to use the portal should contact the county clerk for assistance at the numbers listed below.
Eligible voters may request their ballot beginning on September 18, but must complete their request no later than October 19. The State Board of Elections portal will close at 11:59 pm on October 19.
Voters may return their ballot via US mail.
Mailed ballots must be received by 6pm on Election Day in order to be counted.
In-Person Absentee Process
The passage of House Bill 574 in 2021 also changed the way in-person absentee voting occurs. Under the new law, all eligible voters may vote an absentee ballot, in-person, on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday before Election Day.
For this special election, in-person absentee voting will be held on Thursday, October 28th, Friday, October 29th, and Saturday, October 30th. Contact your County Clerk's Office (listed above, for Adair and Taylor counties.)
