Grimes Projects Turnout for 2018 KY General Election

By Bradford Queen

Frankfort, KY - Approximately 46 percent of the 3.4 million Kentuckians registered to vote will turn out for next week's general election, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes projected Thursday.

Grimes tracks absentee ballot totals as an indicator of final turnout on Election Day. According to current statistics, Grimes projects turnout for the Nov. 6 general election will be in the range of the last two midterm election years, 2010 and 2014, when about 49 percent and 46 percent of Kentuckians voted, respectively.

As of Monday, more than 30,000 in-person absentee votes had been recorded in county clerks' offices and nearly 24,000 mail-in absentee ballots had been sent to voters who had requested them.

About 23 percent of Kentucky voters cast ballots in the May Primary Election.

Adair gardeners can use your leaves - please call

Wendy Butler Burt writes:
Yes, Fall is in the air and leaves are falling all over Adair County. And when you rake and bag those leaves (and pine needles), remember that avid gardeners would be happy to take them off your hands! We use leaves for mulch. We use leaves as soil conditioner. We use leaves anywhere and everywhere in our flower and vegetable gardens. So, if you'd rather that your leaves (no Black Walnut leaves) are used in gardens rather than sent to a landfill, please call Wendy Butler Burt at 270-378-3197 and leave your name and contact information. --Wendy Butler Burt
