FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky's chief election official is scheduled to begin a series of meetings Tuesday evening to gauge public support for allowing Kentucky to join other states that allow early voting.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes will host the first of five meetings at Morgan County High School in West Liberty at 5 p.m.

Kentucky allows only limited early voting by absentee ballots, which are reserved for people who can't get to the polls on Election Day. Typically, that's because of out-of-town travel or health concerns.

The town hall meetings will explore whether Kentucky should join some 32 other states that have less stringent rules for early voting.

Grimes said she's prepared to make legislative or regulatory recommendations based on her findings from the meetings.
