Board of Elections unveils website upgrade

Posted

FRANKFORT, Ky.  (KT) -  The State Board of Elections has a redesigned and streamlined website at its online home, the first overhaul in several years.

 

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, who chairs the board as the state’s chief election officer, announced the new look on Thursday.


"The redesigned website allows users to find information and data, from election results to absentee voting to candidate qualifications to statistics, in a quick and convenient format."


The new website is mobile-friendly, helping Kentuckians find information they need while on the go, she said.


"People are using their phones or tablets more than ever as their primary way to go online," said Grimes. "Making sure our constituents can easily reach and view the State Board of Elections site on smartphones or tablets is incredibly important as Kentucky enters the midterm election cycle."


The redesigned homepage includes links to such information as registering online to vote, election calendars and election results. 


"I'm extremely proud of the level of service our State Board of Elections staff provides," Grimes said. "The new website translates our staff's expertise to give the same constituent-oriented experience to online and mobile users. I’m excited for visitors to use and enjoy the redesigned website."


The website can be found at elect.ky.gov
