Secretary of State Candidates Clash Over Homeless Voter Rights

Sep 20, 2011

Richmond, KY – The two candidates for Kentucky secretary of state have differing views on how much identification should be required to cast a ballot in the Commonwealth. Kentucky Educational Television featured an hour-long discussion Monday night with Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes and Republican Bill Johnson. Johnson favors requiring a picture ID at the polls. Grimes believes current state law on identification at the voting place is sufficient. Both candidates indicate they would be willing to investigate on-line voting.
