Democratic Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear signed an election reform bill into law on Wednesday with bipartisan support in the Republican-controlled state Legislature, expanding some voting measures.
The legislation includes provisions Democrats have advocated for, including increasing early voting, while checking off policies Republicans sought, such as cleaning the state’s voter rolls.
The bill, HB 574, passed overwhelmingly in both chambers of the state government. The state House voted 91-3, while the state Senate voted 33-3 on the bill last week before it went to Beshear’s desk, per CNN.
