Do I need to provide ID when I register to vote in Kentucky

Not strictly, no. But your identity needs to verified by an elections officer. Kentucky requires that election officers confirm the identity of each voter by personal acquaintance or by some document, such as a driver۪s license, social security card, credit card, or other identification card with a picture and a signature. If you can't provide sufficient proof of ID when you register, or if there's a dispute about your qualification to vote, you must sign a written oath before your vote can be cast.
