Calls on McConnell to Pass the RECLAIM Act, Put Miners First

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- As Sen. Mitch McConnell continues to fail Kentucky through the worst economic and health crisis of our lifetime, retired Marine Lt. Col. Amy McGrath called on McConnell to make right on his failed promises to Kentucky’s coal miners by committing to passing the RECLAIM Act and changing bankruptcy laws to put coal miners before Wall Street. 

There have been a number of questions about absentee ballots, especially about what happens if you make a mistake. So, we contacted the Board of Elections, and they laid it out for us. And, as the old saying goes, there’s good news and there’s bad news.

Under Kentucky law, if you vote absentee, your signature on the absentee ballot envelope has to match another copy of your signature (your “signature of record”) available to the election officials in your county.

EDITOR'S NOTE: In her remarks, McGrath again voiced support for unions and more good-paying union jobs.
