The Democracy Docket had this legislation alert:
The Kentucky legislature passed bipartisan voting rights legislation 91-3 on Monday that would establish permanent early voting in the state. The Secretary of State characterized HB 574 as the most significant elections legislation in a century; it includes three days of early voting, vote centers where anyone can cast a ballot no matter their precinct, and the establishment of a new online portal for requesting mail ballots.
Unlike other states, Kentucky’s Republican Secretary of State Michael Adams and Democratic Governor Andy Beshear worked together closely to make pandemic voting easier last year. They put in place reforms such as no-excuse early voting and an online absentee portal, two provisions that will become permanent in HB 574. This cooperation helped the state reduce long voting lines in 2020.
The bill now moves to Democratic governor Andy Beshear’s desk for signing.
