In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming June primary will be much different than in previous years. Hardin County Clerk Debbie Donnelly explains that because of various factors related to COVID-19, voting will take place through mail-in absentee ballots this year. Residents will have to request a ballot, which they can currently do through the clerk’s office. The deadline for ballot requests is June 15th. Mailed ballots will include a pre-paid envelope for return. Additionally, in-person absentee voting will also be allowed. The County Clerk’s Office will allow residents to vote from the parking lot of the Government Center from June 1st to June 22nd. More information can be found online at hccoky.org.
