More Than 2,000 Kentuckians To Cast Votes From Overseas

Absentee ballots are on their way to more than two-thousand Kentuckians overseas.Many of the ballots are going to men and women in the military.Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is proposing some changes in election laws to help military men and women. One of them would allow military personnel to vote by e-mail. Currently, they have to send in their ballots by standard mail.Grimes recently returned from a trip to the Middle East to assess absentee voting procedures.“The process of receiving, filling out, and returning an absentee ballot, whether you are in the Middle East or here in the United States, it can take weeks, especially for those active duty military members that I saw," Grimes said.The proposals will be considered by state lawmakers in 2013. The general election is November 6th.
