It's election day in Kentucky today! And if you're like most people you may be learning this for the first time. It's been a quiet election season as there are only a few offices on the ballot. Kentucky is one of a handful of states that elects its governor in off years. This means that there are fewer offices on the ballot and therefore much less buzz over the candidates. So this translates into lower voter turnout. In fact, turnout is projected to be close to 12 percent of eligible voters that will go to the polls today. If you haven't voted yet, there's still time. Get out there and vote. If you need more information about the candidates, go the CPC website. The polls are open until 6 pm.
