Election reform is taking center stage in the Kentucky General Assembly. These reforms would include, four days of early in-person voting and would permit the establishment of county vote centers. These changes were implemented in the 2020 election as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now several lawmakers would like to see them permanently in place. Secretary of State Michael Adams applauds these efforts, and hopes the legislature will “make permanent improvements to our election system.” As Secretary Adams said, this election reform will be the most significant Kentucky has seen in 25 years. Such reforms promote our good when they ensure the integrity of our elections and promote our civic duty by encouraging greater participation in the process.
