Primary Election Day voting continues with few issues, light turnout so far

Voting continues across Kentucky in the primary election and local polling places are reporting few problems and a light turnout.

Christian County Clerk Mike Kem says the day has been mostly smooth, minus a few early problems with a ballot scanner that have been resolved.

There are eight locations to vote in Christian County and any Democrat or Republican can vote at any of these locations: 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.

Todd County Clerk Cindy O’Bryan also had a few early glitches in machinery, but those have been remedied and Election Day has been smooth there with a light turnout.

Todd County voters are going to all of their normal precincts to cast their ballots.

Trigg County Clerk Carmen Finley has reported no issues with voting there and hopes a slow early turnout will pick up as the day moves along.

She says there have been the normal questions from the public and she believes the voting center options is making voting more convenient.

Trigg County has 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.

Polls close at 6 p.m. and anyone standing in line at 6 will be allowed to vote.
