Trigg County Clerk Carmen Finley shared several ways local citizens can vote in the upcoming election on Nov. 3.

Early Voting•Beginning Oct. 13, one polling center will be open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday at the EOC Building, 39 Jefferson St., and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.

•Early voting is not absentee voting — anyone can vote early for any reason.

Election Day Voting

•On Nov. 3, Election Day, two polling centers will be open in Trigg County from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.:

1. EOC Center, 39 Jefferson St. (behind the Justice Center).

2. The Way Christian Youth Center, 197 Lafayette St. (behind the schools).

•NOTE: No other polling centers will be open due to COVID 19.

Absentee Ballot by Mail

•Those of you who are concerned with contracting or spreading COVID-19 can request a ballot by mail. Simply log onto the state’s portal at govoteky.com or call our office at 270-522-6661 to request a ballot.

•Ballots can be requested through the portal through Oct. 9.

•Mail ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, Nov. 3, and received in the Clerk’s office by Nov. 6.

•A drop box is available for you to return your mail ballots if you are concerned about postal delays. Also, If you have a Post Office Box, please hand your ballot to the Clerk at the Post Office instead of putting it in the mail drop box. It will prevent your ballot from going to Nashville.

Voter Identification

•Kentuckians who were unable to get a driver’s licenses or photo ID due to the pandemic because their circuit clerk’s office was closed, or because they were afraid of exposing themselves to COVID-19, can sign a document explaining this concern and cast their ballot.

•Absentee ballot request deadline: Oct. 9

•Early voting begins: Oct. 13

•General Election Date: Nov. 3

If anyone has any questions, contact the Trigg County Clerk’s office at 270-522-6661.
