Vote in Honor of a Veteran

Kentucky is home to more than 350,000 veterans. These men and women have made tremendous sacrifices to protect the right to vote, and Kentuckians can show their respect and appreciation by Voting in Honor of a Veteran each time they head to the polls.

You can request a Vote in Honor of a Veteran button from your county clerk; you can also request a button and/or leave a tribute to a veteran whom you would like to honor online. The button can be personalized to reflect the name of the veteran in whose honor your vote is being cast.


Military Matters

In September 2012, Secretary Grimes traveled to the Middle East to assess military voting procedures and meet with Kentuckians who are serving abroad. Upon her return, she made recommendations to the Kentucky General Assembly for ensuring that Kentuckians who risk their lives on the battlefield have their voices heard at the ballot box.
