As of 12:30 PM last Tuesday, 100,000 Kentuckians had applied online on the GoVoteKy.com web page to get an absentee ballot. This progress was celebrated by SOS Michael Adams (tongue-in-cheek?): “Voting absentee is easy, secure and wildly popular,” Adams said. “I’m grateful to the Kentuckians who understand that we have fewer voting locations available and fewer poll workers available because of COVID-19 – not only are these Kentuckians being good citizens by voting, but by voting absentee they’re being good citizens in relieving the pressure on our voting locations and our poll workers.” (ref)
Considering that Gov. Beshear has said that all registered voters need to use absentee ballots, 100,000 is not a significant number. In the 2016 Primary Election, 669,668 Kentuckians voted, which was only 20.6% of all registered voters.
It’s a dismal situation.
Is your state or U.S. representative or your state senator pro-life? Thankfully, both Ky U.S. Senators are. If you have never experienced having pro-abortion public servants, you have no idea what you are missing.
People tell you to contact your Ky. representative or senator about important pro-life legislation. You know it will be a wasted effort. People ask you to PLEASE contact your U.S. Congressman‐ who will be deaf to any pro-life pleading. Another wasted effort. Why bother?
Attention District 26 pro-lifers: This fate could be yours if Republican Bill Ferko loses in the Special Election for a new senator. The Primary is the only election featuring this race.
And did you know that some Republicans who are running against KRLA PAC-endorsed incumbents are NOT pro-life? Consider Andy Barr, District 6 Congressman, who is opposed by Chuck Eddy– the founder of Republicans for Andy Beshear and Jacqueline Coleman, 2019.
Barr is also running against Republican Geoff Young who states on his campaign site, “Planned Parenthood is implementing a moral, effective, and objectively pro-life strategy that would reduce the number of abortions (or murders) that would occur in Kentucky and the United States. Planned Parenthood also provides critically important health services to millions of women every ye… I pledge to support Planned Parenthood and will work to reverse every misguided federal law ‘Right-To-Life’ movement has ever gotten enacted. Why? Because all of these unnecessary laws tend to increase, not decrease, the abortion rate.”
One endorsed incumbent Republican is running against a man who has pro-life views but has contributed to pro-abortion candidates. Refer to the KRLA PAC. It’s important to vote in the Primary! June 15 is the last day you can request an application for an absentee ballot.
