Kentucky voters have lots to decide besides president

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky voters have plenty of decisions to make aside from their choice for president when they head to the polls Tuesday.

They'll also choose U.S. congressmen, state lawmakers, local judges and prosecutors. And they'll decide whether to make hunting a constitutional right.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. in both the state's eastern and central time zones.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes said state legislative races, not the matchup between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney, will be the key reason for what she predicts will be a record turnout.

Democrats hope to cut into the Republican majority in the state Senate. And Republicans hope to pick up several House seats, though it's unlikely they will win enough to take majority control from Democrats.
