More than 40,000 Kentuckians have registered to vote or have updated their registration through the online portal GoVoteKy.com.

This is according to Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes as she continues her voter registration effort. Grimes is touring the state to urge people to register ahead of the October 11 deadline.

Nearly 20 stops include universities, colleges and technical schools. Grimes says she’s hoping to improve Kentucky’s ‘lackluster voter turnout.’

In 2015, just over 30% of registered Kentuckians cast ballots. 

GoVoteKy.com launched last March.

In June, more than 100,000 Kentuckians had accessed the website.
