Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is calling for Kentuckians to let their votes in the Nov. 6 election be a show of respect for military veterans.
Grimes said Tuesday that Kentucky is home to more than 350,000 veterans. She said Kentuckians must never take for granted their sacrifices to ensure our freedom.
Voters can get lapel buttons to show that they voted in honor of a veteran. Those buttons can be personalized to reflect the name of the veteran being honored. The program has been in place across the country since 2007.
People can request their button from their local county clerk's office or by going online at http://www.sos.ky.gov/veterans .
