Tuesday is primary election day in Kentucky and voter turnout is expected to be higher locally than the 2014 primary.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Christian County Clerk Mike Kem expects about 500 more voters than turned out for a similar primary four years ago.
That only equates to a 17-percent turnout of eligible voters in Christian County, but Kem says that number is not accurate due to the transient nature of Fort Campbell soldiers who register and then get sent elsewhere.
Elections Coordinator Melinda Humphries says there are no changes to precinct locations in Christian County this year.
Todd County Clerk Cindy O’Bryan is projecting a 35-percent turnout and Trigg County Clerk Carmen Finley expects a turnout of about 30-percent. Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is projecting a 30-percent statewide turnout.
Kem reminds voters across Kentucky that only Democrats and Republicans are eligible to vote in the primary.
