FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Legislation that would make early in-person voting a fixture in Kentucky's elections won praise Tuesday from Republican Secretary of State Michael Adams.

Bills introduced this week in the House and Senate, both dominated by Republicans, would create four days of early in-person voting, including a Saturday, with no excuse required, Adams said.

He called it Kentucky's “most significant election-reform legislation in the past quarter-century.”

"It’s the General Assembly’s prerogative to make our election laws, and now I hope they will exercise their authority to make permanent improvements to our election system,” Adams said in a release.

Last year, pandemic-related rules for Kentucky's general election included multiple weeks of in-person early voting, including Saturdays, to prevent a crush of Election Day voting. The rules applying to last year's election were reached in a bipartisan agreement between Adams and Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear.

Adams said Tuesday that the measures now before lawmakers would enhance voter access and ballot integrity. The bills also would allow counties to establish vote centers, where any voter in the county may vote regardless of precinct, he said. The proposals also would enhance the ability of state election officials to remove nonresident voters from the voter rolls, he said.

11-month-old girl kidnapped by man experiencing homelessness, Los Angeles police say

Los Angeles police are searching for a 39-year-old man suspected of kidnapping an 11-month-old baby girl in South Los Angeles.

The child was taken Sunday around 6 p.m. in the 8100 block of Western Avenue, and was reported Monday morning, the LAPD says.

The girl was identified as Heather.

The suspect has been identified as Delaneo Adams, 39.

He is described as a local homeless man known to the family, but he is not related to the girl or her parents.

He was at the home Sunday night and took the baby.

"He came into the home," said LAPD Det. Liliana Preciado. "He is known to the parents. When one of the parents was out of the home and the other one was distracted, he took the baby."

Police are searching Skid Row and other areas the suspect is known to frequent.

He is described as six feet tall, weighing approximately 185 pounds. He was last seen wearing a purple Lakers jersey, black shorts and Nike sneakers.
