Just a note from Kentucky.

I've mentioned before that the Mrs. and I aren't leaving home very often (maybe once or twice a month) these days, no matter the whether the rules are being relaxed or not, since I am one of those old farts who is 'compromised'.

The KY primary is coming up and there is no way I'm going to risk my life by going to the High School gym where several precincts vote. So, I checked with the County Clerk's Office about who can qualify for an absentee ballot. Turns out you Google 'ky absentee ballot' which asks you what county you live in, you click on your county and it takes you to the home page of your county clerk. One more click and you are in the 'application for absentee ballot'. Fill out the form and you are done. And then...

You get a page that says they will mail you your ballot. Then, and here's the one that almost knocked me over. There is a statement saying something to the effect that "due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we suggest that ALL voters apply for an absentee ballot"

Y'know, KY may not be quite as backward as you seem to think sometimes.
