Incoming state Senate President Robert Stivers says a recommendation from Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes to make sure soldiers serving overseas can cast ballots in elections at home will be designated Senate Bill 1 in the General Assembly session that begins Tuesday.

Grimes and other secretaries of state traveled to the Middle East last year to review the status of military and overseas voting. Grimes met with military service members while there and discussed their experiences in voting while on active duty.

At a joint news conference Monday, Stivers said the bill is intended to make sure people who serve in the military and protect citizens' rights are also able to cast their own ballots in a simple way and be counted.
