One week left before election day

FRANKFORT, KY (AP) - Election Day is one week away, and Secretary of State Trey Grayson is encouraging every Kentuckian who's registered to vote to cast a ballot.

Grayson says voters should be aware polls are busier during morning and evening rush hours and lunch. He says voting can go faster too if voters take a look at a sample ballot ahead of going to the polls.

Kentuckians are also entitled to time off to vote as long as they request leave before the day of the election.

Grayson says voters are required to show proof of identification at the polls, such as driver's license, Social Security card, credit card or other ID that shows photo and signature.

Information is available online at www.vote.ky.gov or www.elect.ky.gov, or by contacting the local county clerk.
