FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — In-person absentee voting has begun in Kentucky for the Nov. 6 elections.

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says eligible voters can cast an absentee ballot in person at their local county clerk's office. To be eligible, a voter must be either out of the county on Election Day, elderly, disabled, ill, in the military or a dependent of a military person, an overseas resident, a student or person who temporarily resides outside the county, a voter or the spouse of a voter who has surgery scheduled on Election Day, a pregnant woman in the third trimester or an election official.
