KY Veterans will be able to register to vote at VA facilities

From Michon Lindstrom

Frankfort, KY - On National Voter Registration Day, Secretary of State Michael Adams announced a partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide voter registration information and assistance to Kentucky veterans and eligible dependents at VA facilities across the state.

Under the partnership, select VA facilities in Kentucky will be designated as voter registration agencies under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.

"Up until now, Kentuckians could register to vote at drivers licensing facilities and public assistance agencies, but not Veterans Affairs facilities," said Adams. "I am proud are making it easier for veterans to participate in the democracy they put their lives on the line to protect."

The agreement comes after months of talks between the VA and Adams' Office.

"Keeping our nation's sacred obligation to Veterans includes making sure that they can fully participate in our democratic process through voting," said Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs Donald Remy. "Veterans have sacrificed greatly to protect the rights and freedoms that define us all as Americans, and it is our solemn duty to make sure that they are able to enjoy those rights and liberties here at home."
