Video Your Vote in Kentucky, Just Not at Your Polling Place

October 22, 2008

Planning to video your vote for YouTube?  Or maybe you intend to participate in the Polling Place Photo Project at New York Times?  In Kentucky, state law forbids the use of recording equipment at the polls.   Kentucky’s legislature outlawed video recording or using cell phones or cameras in the voting places in 2005 to avoid intimidating other voters.

Kentucky folks can be a creative bunch.  Somehow, we can figure out how to photograph or video the vote, avoid intimidation and responsibly abide by the law.

For more information about voting in Kentucky, visit:, call: the State Board of Elections at (502) 573-7100 or email: Secretary of State Trey Grayson at
