Mientras los votantes de Kentucky en todo el estado se dirigen a las urnas para elegir al próximo gobernador, fiscal general, secretario de estado y otros funcionarios estatales, VOTE411.org puede ayudarlos a navegar el proceso de votación. Laura Weinstein, de la Liga, dice que el sitio web ofrece información detallada de los candidatos para los cargos electos, detalles del registro de votantes, ubicaciones de los lugares de votación y otras informaciones electorales útiles.

"Si va a VOTE411, podrá ver los diferentes tipos de identificaciones con fotografía que se permiten en el estado de Kentucky, hay una amplia gama, pero asegúrese de llevar una identificación con foto," insistió la entrevistada.

Puede votar de 6 a 18 horas. Si está en la fila a las 6 p.m., la ley estatal explica que se le debe permitir votar. Weinstein añade que las personas que todavía tienen boletas por correo deben llevarlas a la oficina del secretario del condado local antes de las 6 p.m. de hoy.

Weinstein insta a todos los habitantes de Kentucky a acudir a las urnas.

"Asegúrase de que, cualquiera que sea tu perspectiva, su voz sea escuchada porque es muy importante participar. Esta es una elección muy importante. Simplemente animaría a todos a que consideren votar," mencionó también Weinstein.

Una encuesta reciente realizada por Emerson College encontró que el gobernador en ejercicio Andy Beshear y el fiscal general Daniel Cameron estaban empatados, con un 47% apoyando a Beshear y un 47% apoyando a Cameron. El 2% apoyó a alguien más y el 4% estaba indeciso.
