FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes launched a program on Tuesday aimed at keeping the addresses of domestic violence and sexual assault victims out of publicly available voter records.
The launch took place in the Capitol rotunda and was also attended by Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer and Fayette County Sherriff Kathy Witt.
In order to participate in the Address Confidentiality Program, a person has to have a current emergency protective order or a domestic violence order, or be involved in a criminal case which is ongoing or has resulted in a conviction.
Grimes says she believes that no eligible voter should have to choose between their security and their right to vote.
