Happy Election Day, y'all!
Here at HerKentucky, we're not committed to a Red State or a Blue State. We're way more concerned about having an informed, active state. We never try to sway our readers toward a particular candidate, but we sure hope that y'all make informed choices. Most importantly, we hope that y'all honor the Commonwealth by exercising your right to vote!
