The city of Covington has published a list of voting requirements for its citizens if you intend to cast your ballot there on the forthcoming Tuesday.
There are fewer polling places in Covington than in past elections, and many of the old polling places have moved. On Election Day, November 8, every voter has a designated place to cast their ballot. The option to cast a ballot at another place is available.
Ken Smith, the city manager of Covington, stated that voters needed to be informed of the changes and make plans. “Don’t rely on continuing to do what you always did.”

Note: Every voter in Kentucky must now cast a paper ballot.
Paper ballots with pre-printed election results will be available at each voter’s designated polling place on election day. Voting in the City of Covington is highly recommended.
If a voter is unable to cast their ballot there, they may still do so at any other polling place in Kenton County on Election Day by requesting an ExpressVote ballot marker or by going to a polling place for early voting and receiving a Print-on-Demand ballot for their particular precinct.
