Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes announced Wednesday that registered voters who are unable to go to the polls on Election Day, Nov. 8, due to a medical emergency may now cast absentee ballots in the general election.

"Every eligible Kentuckian should have an equal opportunity to cast their ballot, including those who cannot physically go to the polls on Election Day," said Grimes. "That's why absentee ballots for voters with medical emergencies are an important part of the election process."
