Kentucky's primary election is today. And if you think we've been talking about it a lot lately, well, that's because we think it's important for Kentuckians to get out and vote. There will be candidates on the ballot ranging from local to federal offices but primaries are often neglected. In fact, last election only 20 percent of registered voters showed up at the polls.  But primaries are important and it’s our civic duty to vote. After all, so much has been sacrificed by so many others in order to give us this right. Voting is a responsibility and it's a privilege. And if each of us hopes to maintain the freedom to choose our leaders then we need to exercise this right. So if you haven't already done so, get out and vote today! The polls are open until 6 pm.
