Not strictly, no. But your identity needs to verified by an elections officer. Kentucky requires that election officers confirm the identity of each voter by personal acquaintance or by some document, such as a driver۪s license, social security card, credit card, or other identification card with a picture and a signature. If you can't provide sufficient proof of ID when you register, or if there's a dispute about your qualification to vote, you must sign a written oath before your vote can be cast.
No. Kentucky won't issue an absentee ballot to anyone whose identity can't be verified. If you've received your absentee ballot, your identity has been verfied and you are clear to vote.
You can apply for a emergency absentee ballot if you experience a medical emergency during the 14 days before the election. Your spouse can also apply for an emergency absentee ballot on your behalf. Contact your Kentucky County Clerk's Office if you need an emergency absentee ballot.
