The Kentucky Democracy Project is planning a series of events to help register voters and acquaint them with candidates.
Kentucky’s voter registration deadline for the November election is Oct. 11.
The events include two candidate meet-and-greets, two pub crawls over the first two weekends of October, and other opportunities to register voters across Northern Kentucky.
The Kentucky Democracy Project will be set up at Piper’s Cafe at the corner of Sixth and Philadelphia streets in Covington from 4 to 6 p.m. on Oct. 1 for a “Democracy Ice Cream Social.”

Following that, pizza is being donated by Goodfella’s Pizza in Mainstrasse Village, and volunteers will then break into teams to receive training on registering voters. They will begin a pub crawl starting at 7 p.m. at Piper’s to register voters.
Several bars have been confirmed including Green House Bar, Bourbon House 1841, Up Over, Crafts and Vines, Bar 32, and ending at Rosie’s Tavern. They are hoping to add other stops along the way.
