Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says there’s been a surge in the number of people voting absentee this election.
Grimes says because of the spike, she’s now predicting Tuesday's voter turnout will equal or even exceed that of the last governor’s race.
Fayette County Clerk Don Blevins says absentee voting is not a guaranteed predictor of participation. “There’s a loose correlation between absentee turnout and the actual turnout at the election," said Blevins. "I don’t know that it tracks exactly one for one, so it’s gonna be hard to say.”
