Polls opened across Kentucky at 6 a.m. for the 2018 general election and voters have until 6 o’clock this evening to make their voices heard.
Christian County Clerk Mike Kem says the only issue getting started was human error by a few poll workers who had trouble getting the handicapped voting machine up and running—something that has since been resolved.
Kem reminds that if you vote straight-party ticket, you’ll still need to vote for the constitutional amendment and any non-partisan races on your ballot separately.
Todd County Clerk Cindy O’Bryan says they got up and running with no problems and no lines.
Trigg County Clerk Carmen Finley has been projecting the highest voter turnout in the region at 58 percent and says there were people waiting to vote at many locations when they opened the polls.
There were no early reports of any problems with voting in Trigg County.
We’ll have live election coverage this evening at 6 on News Radio 95.3 FM, 1230 AM and online at whopam.com.
