Central Kentucky | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Chapter: Central Kentucky

The Central Kentucky chapter is one of the oldest chapters within KFTC. We are a diverse group of people who care about making our communities healthy and safe for all people. Our chapter members are interested in a range of issues, but currently we are working on educating folks about democracy through our voter empowerment work. We're also focusing on building economic, environmental and racial justice in Lexington and the Central Kentucky area. Please join us at our next chapter meeting or at one of our upcoming events. Meet other chapter members to learn about the exciting work we're doing and how you can be a part of it!

The Central Kentucky KFTC Chapter took that occasion to register 120 students on UK's campus at a loud and powerful voter registration table, spreading the word to make sure students know that they have the right to be registered locally, even if they're from far away.

If you're not registered, or need to update your voter address, get down to your local County Clerk's office or register online -  http://www.govoteky.com
