UPDATED: James Toller of Libertarian Party will be challenging Mark Hart for the Kentucky 78th District House of Representative seat. Brad Barron, also of the Libertarian Party, will be contesting for the U. S. Senate seat with Mitch McConnell and Amy McGrath.
It could be the race for President of the United States of America between Republican Donald J. Trump or Democrat Joe Biden or Democrat Amy McGrath’s and Libertarian Brad Barron's attempt to unseat Republican Senator Mitch McConnell or Republican Thomas Massie’s defense of his U. S. House of Representative seat from Democrat Alexandra Owensby.
Locally, it could be deciding the Butler’s and/or Falmouth’s City Council.
Issue-wise, maybe it is the decision Pendleton County voters will have in deciding if the rest of Pendleton County should join Falmouth and allow alcohol sales.
Whether it is an independent race or the entire ticket that draws your interest, voters will have an easy route to cast their votes and make sure their voices are heard.
The portal to request an absentee ballot for the Nov. 3 General Election is open at www.GoVoteKy.com.
“Please vote. You can request an absentee ballot right now. If you’re nervous about COVID, if you live with somebody like I do who has a pre-existing condition, if you’re around people who are susceptible, go to govoteky.com and request one,” said Governor Andy Beshear. “If you believe you haven’t been heard, your opportunity is voting.”
Pendleton County Clerk Rita Spencer indicated that residents can also contact her office to request an absentee ballot but warned that requests must be made by October 9. You cannot request an absentee ballot after that date.

The plan for voting on Election Day Tuesday, November 3 is still being determined with the hope that polling places will be open throughout the county.
