Polls open at 6 a.m. Tuesday across Kentucky for the primary election and officials hope you’ll get out and vote.
While there are not any hotly contested state or national races on the primary ballot, Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams reminds that it is the local elections that have the most impact on your everyday life.
Christian County Clerk Mike Kem says there are eight locations to vote in Christian County and any Democrat or Republican can vote at any of these locations Tuesday: the Bruce Convention Center, Oak Grove Valor Hall, South Christian Elementary School, Sinking Fork Baptist Church, Pembroke Baptist Church, Crofton City Hall, the Christian County Senior Citizens Center, and Christian County Courthouse.
Kem expects voter turnout to be low, but says it’s hard to predict with a vast majority of the primaries on the Republican side and other factors that have made this year unique.
Todd County Clerk Cindy O’Bryan says all of the regular polling places are open there and she expects a slow turnout, considering there are only two local races.
She reminds that only Democrats and Republicans can vote in this year’s primary election.
Trigg County Clerk Carmen Finley says they have seven voting locations where any registered voter can cast their ballot: the Trigg County EOC, The Way on Lafayette Street, East Golden Pond Fire Department, Cerulean Fire Department, Trigg County Complex Convention Center, South Road Fire Department and Trigg-Lyon Fire Department.
Secretary Adams says no matter where you vote, report it if you see anything suspicious at a polling place.
You can reach the Attorney General’s Election Fraud Hotline by calling 1-800-328-VOTE.
Polls are open from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. across Kentucky and if you’re standing in line at 6 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.
