Election Officials Predict Relatively Light Turnout in Primary

Louisville/ Bowling Green, KY – Kentucky voters are heading to the polls today to choose
nominees for offices ranging from the General Assembly
to the Presidency. However, the lack of a heated race in
the contests topping the ballot is expected to contribute to
a relatively light turnout.

Turnout in Bowling Green is described as "light" and those
voting this morning had little or no wait at the polls.

A recent Appeals Court decision struck down Kentucky's
500 foot restriction on electioneering near polling places.
However, Secretary of State Trey Grayson has warned
candidates that it is still illegal to campaign in an
actual polling place.
