Sunny weather and an abundance of local races on the ballot could make for a stronger than expected voter turnout in today’s general election, with polls open until 6 p.m.
Christian County Clerk Mike Kem says there were issues with ballot-scanning machines at three precincts during the morning hours, but it didn’t delay anyone who arrived to vote.
Kem said human error by poll workers caused few problems getting the handicapped machines going at a few precincts at 6 a.m., but those issues were quickly resolved.
He 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 turnout has been strong—with lines reported at a couple locations.
Officials at the Trigg County Clerk’s Office said they continued to be problem-free throughout the morning and Clerk Carmen Finley was expecting a strong turnout of about 58% by the time the polls close.
You’ll be allowed to vote as long as you are standing in line at 6 p.m.
