The enthusiasm for the election is being seen around the country. Here in Kentucky, voter registration has hit an all time high.

The deadline for registration for this election isn't until Monday, but the Secretary of State's Office says his staff has received a record number of voter registration cards.

As of September 15th, more than 2.8 million Kentuckians were registered to vote. State officials say come Monday, that number will be even higher.

They say many county clerks around the state are also reporting a record number of registered voters.

In Fayette County, officials say there's been alot of interest.

"It has been very busy in our office. There's been a lot of activity, a lot of phone calls about getting registered, a lot of walk in votes and the last few days quite a few cards from registration drives," says Mary Kitts, the Voter Registration Manager.

Just a reminder, you have to be registered by Monday if you plan to vote in this election.

If you have moved since the last time you registered you are reminded to update your address.

All cards will be accepted until the close of business Monday at your local county clerks office.

If you plan to mail your registration card in, it must be postmarked by Monday.
