Voting registers were created to make it easier for election officials to run the various elections held in Kentucky. These registers were often arranged alphabetically by the names of citizens eligible to vote. The early voting registers listed just the head of house, while some of the later voting registers listed not only the name but also the voter’s address, naturalization information, and date and place of birth.

White males in Kentucky, age 21 and over, paid a poll tax for the privilege of voting. See the "Taxation" section for records.

Original poll (voter) lists may be found in the custody of county clerks. The Family History Library has few such lists for Kentucky. Those available will be listed in the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog under:
