As Kentucky voters head to the polls to choose the state's next governor, attorney general, secretary of state and other state officials, VOTE411.org can help them navigate the voting process.

Laura Weinstein, chair of the League's voter services committee, said the website offers detailed candidate information for the elected offices, voter registration details, polling place locations and other helpful election information.

"If you go to VOTE411, you can see the different types of photo IDs that are allowed in the state of Kentucky, and there is a wide range, but be sure to bring a photo ID with you," she explained.

You can vote from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you're in line by 6 p.m., state law says you must be allowed to vote. Weinstein said people that still have mail-in ballots should take them to their local County Clerk's office by 6 p.m. today.

Weinstein urged all Kentuckians to get to the ballot box.

"Making sure that, whatever your perspective is, your voice is heard because it's very important to participate. This is a very important election. I just would encourage everyone to consider voting," she continued.

A recent poll by Emerson College found incumbent Gov. Andy Beshear and Attorney General Daniel Cameron in a dead heat, with 47% supporting Beshear and 47% supporting Cameron. Another 2% supported someone else, and 4% were undecided.
