No absentee ballots yet in winery vote

GLASGOW — Absentee voting for the special election coming up on Jan. 29 began on Monday, and so far no one has voted absentee, according to officials with the Barren County Clerk’s office.

The 666 people who vote in the Thomerson Park or Dry Fork B-103 precinct will get to decide if wine should be sold at the Mattingly Farms Winery.

People have until Jan. 28 to vote absentee.

There are several reasons for voting absentee.

“Mainly, it’s if they are going to be outside of Barren County from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. in that precinct,” said Amanda Sturgeon, deputy county clerk. “That’s the main reason that everybody does.”

Other reasons for voting absentee are: a student who is going to be in school outside the county that day; a voter who has surgery scheduled who is going to be hospitalized on that day; or a woman in her last trimester of pregnancy, Sturgeon said.

Jared Mattingly and his wife, Ashton, are pursuing the sale of wine by the bottle at Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese located along Thomerson Park Road in the Austin community of southern Barren County.
