The Christian County Clerk’s Office has identified seven polling places for the November 3rd general election, which state election officials will need to approve.
The following have been identified as potential polling places on Election Day:
- James E. Bruce Convention Center, 303 Conference Center Drive
- Christian County Senior Citizens Center, 1402 W. Seventh St.
- Christian County Courthouse, 511 S. Main St.
- Valor Hall Conference and Event Center, 105 Walter Garrett Lane, Oak Grove
- Crofton City Hall, 101 E. Mill St.
- Pembroke Baptist Church, 144 S. Main St.
- Sinking Fork Baptist Church, 5800 Princeton Road
Regardless of a Christian County voter’s home address, they will be able to vote at any polling place. The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Election Day.
Voters will also have several options for early voting, in addition to absentee voting by mail. The courthouse and the Christian County Sheriff’s Department, 701 W. Seventh St., will have early, in-person voting from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 13-17, 19-24, and 26-31.
Voters have until October 9th to request an absentee, mail-in ballot. The easiest way is through the state’s voter information portal. Voters who need additional assistance should call the clerk’s office at (270) 887-4105.
Completed ballots may be returned in the mail as long as they are postmarked no later than November 3rd. Voters may also hand-deliver their absentee ballots to drop boxes at the courthouse and the sheriff’s department during regular business hours, or at any polling place on Election Day.
The deadline to register to vote is October 5th. Kentucky residents who are U.S. citizens and who will be 18 years old by Election Day may register online or in-person at the county clerk’s office.
Because of the coronavirus, a limited number of customers are allowed inside the courthouse, so wait times can be longer than local residents typically have experienced, Deputy County Clerk Melinda Humphries previously said. (provided by the Kentucky New Era).
