EDITOR'S NOTE: Here is a statement from Marisa McNee, Kentucky Democratic Party spokesperson, on the poll: This poll reflects the clear grassroots support for Amy McGrath, and confirms that Kentucky families know Senator McConnell has been sacrificing the needs of the Commonwealth for his own political ambition.

We hear you.

You're fired up to vote, but you're worried about getting the coronavirus while standing in line at the polls, even if you're packing hand sanitizer, wearing a mask, and socially-distancing yourself from other voters.

"Don't run the risk of waiting until Nov. 3 to vote," warns Liles Taylor, Kentucky State AFL-CIO legislative coordinator.
