Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes was the guest speaker at this afternoon’s Pennyrile Area Development District Board of Directors meeting, where she spent a great deal of time discussing military voting and no time at all on her political future.
Interviewed after the meeting, Secretary Grimes said she is still mulling over whether she will oppose Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in next year’s election.
During her remarks, Secretary Grimes said she was pleased with legislation passed by this year’s General Assembly to make voting for military personnel overseas an easier process, but she hopes to make it entirely electronic in the near future.
Secretary Grimes says the ballots of approximately 300 Kentucky military voters stationed overseas didn’t make it to their county clerks to be counted in time last year. Some of that delay may have been due to complications from Hurricane Sandy, but she says that is still unacceptable.
