Am I eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to vote in Kentucky if you:
  • Are a U.S. citizen
  • Are a resident of Kentucky
  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
You are NOT eligible to vote in Kentucky if:
  • You are registered to vote in another state
  • A judge has specifically ruled that you are not able to vote.
  • You must not have been convicted of a felony, or if you have, your voting rights must have been restored.
Restorative Requirements
  • If you are convicted of a non-violent felony, your right to vote is automatically restored once you complete your full sentence.
  • If you are convicted of a felony involving treason, bribery, or a violent crime, or if you are convicted of a felony outside of Kentucky, once you have completed all terms of your sentence including probation and parole, your right to vote may only be restored by the petitioning the Governor.
You may preregister to vote in Kentucky
  • at 17 years of age provided you will be 18 by the next general election.
Service members and their dependents may register and request a ballot using the overseas voter registration/ballot request form ("FPCA"). Your state does not require an ID to be provided in order to register/request your ballot.
    U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
    • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

    Can I vote if I have a record?

    Please use our eligibility tool to find out if you can vote.

    I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

    Students who lived in Kentucky before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Kentucky voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. To establish voting residency in Kentucky, you must intend for your school address to be your home. Your residence is where you live, the place where you intend to return whenever you are traveling. There is no requirement under Kentucky law that you intend to make your home at a place permanently or indefinitely in order to establish residence.

    Will I need ID?

    To register to vote in Kentucky you should provide:
    • Your Kentucky Driver's License or State ID Number (online applicants only)
