Ky. Secretary of State unveils new voter registration campaign inspired by his failure to ‘unmute’ himself

On National Voter Registration Day Tuesday, Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams unveiled a new voter registration slogan and logo, encouraging Kentuckians to “Unmute Yourself” and register to vote.

“Voting is how you make yourself heard,” Adams said. “It has never been easier to vote in Kentucky. Unmute yourself by registering to vote at our website, sos.ky.gov.”

Secretary Adams has repeatedly forgotten to unmute himself on Zoom calls, including during nationally televised testimony before Congress.

Those occasions inspired this new campaign to increase voter registration, which has stalled during the pandemic.

Kentuckians who wish to vote in the special elections for the 51st and 89th House Districts and the 22nd Senate District must register to vote by Monday, October 4.
