Past Elector Objections Urged to Come Forward
12 February 2021
The latest Revised Register of Electors published by the Elections Office is now open for the public to review and submit claims and objections before the Thursday, 25 February 2021 deadline.
Anyone who was registered to vote prior to 6 November 2009 but were removed from the register due to residency requirements, are encouraged to submit a claim form (available from elections.ky under the Forms section) to their district’s Registering Officer before the 25 February deadline in order to be reinstated following a recent ruling by the Revising Officer.
During the December 2020 Claims and Objections hearings, the Revising Officer (Chief Magistrate) ruled that voters who were registered immediately prior to the commencement of the 2009 Constitution on 6 November 2009 are not subject to the residency requirements under section 90(1)(b) and 90(1)(c), but instead qualify under Section 90(1)(a) and may be registered.
