Kentucky Voter Turnout Better than Expected

A record 2,944,603 Kentuckians were registered to vote in Tuesday's general election, but just more than 28 percent made the trip to the polls. By about 10:45 p.m., with 99.61 percent of precincts reporting, 837,868 ballots had been counted. The percentage of voters was slightly higher than the 25 percent to 28 percent that Secretary of State Elaine N. Walker had predicted.
