Secretary Grimes Forecasts Turnout in Primary Election
By Lynn Sowards Zellen
Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes today projected approximately 10 percent of the 3.1 million people registered to vote in Kentucky will turn out for the May 19, 2015, Primary Election.
"After reviewing absentee data provided by our county clerks and historical turnout in similar election cycles, I forecast only approximately one in 10 registered Kentucky voters will cast ballots in Tuesday's Primary Election," Grimes said. "But as the Commonwealth's chief advocate for civic engagement, I am hopeful that as many as are eligible will participate."
In 2011, the last election for statewide constitutional officers in Kentucky, 10.35 percent of voters went to the polls for the Primary. 17 percent of the Kentucky electorate voted in the 2003 Primary Election, which is the last time there was not an incumbent candidate for the office of Governor.
As of May 11, 2015, 3,388 voters had voted absentee on machines in county clerks' offices and 3,586 absentee ballots had been mailed to voters.
Grimes encourages voters to prepare to vote on May 19 by checking their polling places and viewing sample ballots through the Voter Information Center. Click this link for Sample Ballots for Adair and Surrounding Counties on ColumbiaMagazine.com.
