Voters head to polls today to elect two lawmakers

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP/WKYT) - Voters will head to the polls Tuesday to choose replacements for two state lawmakers who resigned this year.

In Lexington, Democrat Reggie Thomas, Republican Michael Johnson and independent Richard Moloney are vying for the seat vacated by Democratic state Sen. Kathy Stein when she was appointed to a judicial position in Fayette County.

And in western Kentucky, Republican Suzanne Miles of Owensboro and Democrat Kim Humphrey of Morganfield are seeking to replace former Democratic state Rep. John Arnold, who resigned after being accused of sexual harassment.

Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time.

The races have been competitive with the state Republican and Democratic parties pumping in campaign funds. Democrats are bent on keeping the seats despite a push by the GOP to win both.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes sent out some reminders for those voters who will be heading to the polls. She urges voters to let officials know immediately if you encounter any problems at the polls. You can address issues with your precinct election officers, the county clerk, the State Board of Elections at 502-573-7100, or the Attorney General's Election Fraud Hotline at 1-800-328-VOTE.
