After a tête-à-tête earlier this week, Kentucky’s governor and secretary of state are making an announcement regarding voting in this year’s general election.

They have been negotiating the details of expanded use of absentee ballots, as well as early voting — both of which were parts of this year’s primary.

While both have agreed that there was some success in the way the primary was handled, Secretary of State Michael Adams has said his main concern for November continues to be the state’s system not being able to handle millions of mail-in ballots.

Beshear has said he wants more language to ensure as many people as possible can mail in their vote. He also wants early voting to last for as much as four weekend, while Adams has been considering two weeks and Saturdays.

On Wednesday, Beshear said he believed they were close to an agreement on how to proceed in November. On Friday, they called a joint press conference in regards to the election, which may mean they’ve found common ground.
