The commonwealth might make a major change to the election process to help get more people to the polls.

The Kentucky Senate approved a proposal to move races for governor, lieutenant governor, and other statewide offices to the same year as the presidential elections. Currently those seats are up for election the year before a presidential race.

Voter turnout during presidential years tends to be higher. It's unclear if those seat holders would have longer terms at first to allow for such changes.

The proposal now goes to the House for further consideration.
