Voter Turnout Expected To Be Light Tuesday

Kentucky’s chief election official is projecting about 12.5% of the state’s registered voters will turn out for tomorrow’s primary election. Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes said Thursday it appears turnout next Tuesday will be consistent with past primary elections, based partly on current absentee voting patterns.Grimes says it’s “not OK” for such a small portion of Kentuckians to vote and says she hopes more Kentuckians go to the polls to prove her prediction wrong.Kentuckians will be selecting nominees for governor and other statewide constitutional offices this week.
