Secretary Grimes forecasts turnout in Nov. 8 election
By Bradford Queen
News from Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes' office
FRANKFORT, KY (Wed 2 Nov 2016) - Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes today projected approximately 60 percent of the 3.3 million people registered to vote in Kentucky will turn out for next week's general election.
"We hope this year will continue to be a record-breaking year in Kentucky," said Grimes. "Two weeks ago, we made history with the highest number of Kentuckians registered to vote. Now, we hope that will translate to great voter turnout on Election Day."
Grimes tracks absentee ballot totals as an indicator of final turnout on Election Day. According to current statistics, Grimes projects turnout for the Tuesday, November 8, 2016, general election will be on par with the presidential elections of 2008 and 2012 when 64 percent and 60 percent of Kentuckians voted, respectively.
As of Monday, nearly 47,000 voters had voted in person on machines in county clerks' offices and approximately 39,700 mail-in absentee ballots had been sent to voters who had requested them.
About 20 percent of Kentucky voters cast ballots in the May Primary Election.
Grimes encourages voters to prepare to vote on Nov. 8 by checking their polling places and viewing sample ballots through GoVoteKY.com, Kentucky's one-stop portal for election resources.
