Voter Empowerment | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Voter Empowerment

The Booker campaign taught me about listening to voters, wherever they are in KY

For the first time in recent memory, an unapologetic progressive came close to beating a moderate, establishment candidate in a statewide race. Charles Booker’s campaign for U.S. Senate highlighted how eager Kentuckians are for change.

Fact Sheet about Impact of Heroes Act on Kentucky

This summary was prepared by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities to inform people about the impact of the Heroes Act (HR 6800) on people and communities in Kentucky. The Heroes Act was passed by the US House in June of 2020 and contains many provisions to provide robust federal aid to people, workers, states, local governments, and local and state boards of election.

Booker not elected, but we're in this for the long haul

Thousands of us across Kentucky were honored to work for an amazing, inspiring candidate, Rep. Charles Booker. And though he didn’t win his bid for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, he changed the conversation. He stood up for a bold vision and showed up for Kentuckians in times of crisis. He called out our broken system and called on all of us to build a brighter future.

It’s essential for Kentucky, our country and the world that we elect new leadership to the U.S. Senate in November, and we’re committed to helping make that happen. Once again, the eyes of the nation will be on Kentuckians. As we continue our work to register and mobilize new voters and have even more conversations, we'll be holding Amy McGrath to her commitment to learning from the Booker movement and centering Kentuckians in her campaign. She must hear from us, and we must work together to elect a new senator.

‘A qualified success.’ Let’s continue what worked in Tuesday’s primary and fix what didn’t

Amidst cries of voter suppression and concerns about the potential of massive lines at the polls, the reality on the ground on Tuesday was pretty good. Not perfect. Not ideal. But overall, the election was a qualified success.

Primary shows KY should adopt mail-in voting permanently. You can help make that happen.

Despite national cries of doom and gloom, it now turns out that we probably had a record number of people voting in a primary. That’s in large part due to the ease of widespread use of absentee ballots for the first time in Kentucky.
