Kentucky does not practice early voting but some agree it would an effective way to generate even more votes.

"I'm supportive of efforts to open our polls so we don't have barriers to our ballot box and that individuals regardless of whether they have an excuse can make sure they have their voice heard. It's something I'm definitely in favor of and we will be working with our legislators and hopefully you may see some changes,"says Grimes.
