Lexington, KY – Businesses looking to search and file reports and those looking to submit forms for political candidacy will discover a redesigned website for the Kentucky Secretary of State that launched Tuesday.
The new sos.ky.gov “offers many of the same features,” according to secretary of state spokeswoman Lynn Zellen, “it just makes them easier to find and more streamlined.”
The new site, which is focused on being functional on mobile devices, has been in the works for six months, Zellen said and was launched Tuesday so those looking to file annual business reports could do so on the old site until Monday’s filing deadline.
“We of course didn’t want the launch of the redesigned website to disrupt or confuse anyone who was trying to accomplish that filing,” Zellen said.
“That was really the driving factor behind having today as the launch,” she said.
Zellen said the timing did not have anything to do with her boss, Alison Lundergan Grimes’ announcement Monday of her intention to challenge Mitch McConnell for a seat in the US Senate.
“The redesigned website enables constituents to find what they need,” a release from the Secretary of State’s office reads, “from business filings to election information, from historical records to current events – quickly and conveniently.”
