VOTE: It's Election Day - Polls are open 6am-6pm prevailing time
Adair County's most watched race is Kentucky 15th Senate Seat. 7 names are on the ballot, but votes will be counted only for Mark Polston, A.C. Donahue, or Chris Girdler. Two candidates, Adair Countian Hilda Legg and Casey Countian Todd Hoskins, have withdrawn. Two others do not live in district and votes will not be counted for them. Polston has backing of Senator McGaha and has been endorsed by Todd Hoskins. His campaign is seen as stronger in Adair, Casey, and Russell Counties. Chris Girdler has had the most campaign money to spend and is seen stronger in Pulaski County. Local Circuit Court race in Russell County should add to vote total there. Local races in Pulaski, too.

Today is an important day: It's primary election day in Kentucky. The ballots are short in Adair (CT), Casey (ET), Cumberland (CT), Green (CT), Metcalfe (CT), Russell (CT) and Taylor (ET) Counties, so there should be no long lines to deal with today.
This election is just as important as any other. Voting today is validation, a personal patriotic acknowledgement of the sacrifice so many have made to give us the right to vote. With the selection of state and local officials, there are important personal, partisan, and political reasons to go to the polls today.
Even if for purely pragmatic reasons, the level of voting is a a metric of the values of the, as much as educational attainment, financial, and health measurements are used in critiques of locales. It shows we care.
