Voters Begin Casting Ballots

Voters are out casting their ballots across the state. Today is primary election day in Kentucky.

Polls opened at six this morning, and will stay open until six tonight.

Secretary of State Trey Grayson says he believes there will only be about a 15% voter turnout at the polls today.
Grayson says they're expecting such a low turnout partly because people aren't as interested in politics, and because there are so many candidates to choose from.

To win the primary, a candidate for governor has to win 40 percent of the vote.
If no one gets 40 percent, the top two vote-getters will have a runoff election on June 26th.

    Amen to the end of soliciting phone calls. They should be prohibited to any resident listed on the AG's no call list. We didn't get a single call from any Democatic candidate but were swarmed with calls from Republicans. Giving my husband another nudge in his consideration of changing his political affiliation.

    Disillusioned...I believe that we will start caring when our elected politicians start showing they care about our opinions, wants, needs and desires that have a dramatic impact on our freedom, way of life and taxes. When amnesty is granted to people who came here illegally; when a criminal has more rights than the victim and gas prices keep going up without any talk on Capitol Hill about going after the oil companies, it's business as usual for the politicians. Free healthcare for them and their families and a guaranteed retirement income for a few years of service is way too much for me to handle. I could go on about pork barrel spending, bowing down to the lobbyists and special interest groups, etc., but I don't have the time nor will this website allow me 100 pages to express my opinion on these matters.

    GATEWOOD is the only real choice for ending corruption in Frankfort!

    I will NOT vote for anyone who uses automated phone calls. These should be outlawed. They are as annoying as sales calls.
