Polls opening in Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Polling places are opening their doors in Kentucky.

Polls are open in the state Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes has predicted a record number of voters will cast their ballots.

Besides the presidential race, Kentucky has a competitive congressional race in central Kentucky. Voters also will choose state legislators and decide whether hunting and fishing should be a constitutional right in the state. Voters in eastern Kentucky will choose a Supreme Court justice.

The National Weather Service office in Louisville is forecasting pleasant conditions for the day with highs in the 50s and overnight lows in the low- to mid-30s.
