Share/Save/Bookmark

FRANKFORT, Kentucky — Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes has hired a 20-year Army veteran to oversee a new online voter registration system for military and overseas voters.

Retired Army 1st Sgt. Matthew L. Selph will oversee the new system that will allow military and overseas voters to request absentee ballots, register to vote and update their voter registration information online. The system is part of a 2013 law approved by the state legislature and is paid for by a $2.2 million federal grant from the Department of Defense.

In his 20 year military career Selph managed $10 million in infrastructure contracts in Afghanistan. Selph has owned and operated Mooserack Coffee Company in Elizabethtown since 2008.

The new system should be online in time for the November elections.
