Low turnout has plagued Kentucky elections for the last few cycles. About a third of voters cast ballots in the 2008 and 2010 primaries.</p><p>Grimes says the lack of competitive primaries for President, Congress and the General Assembly will keep most voters at home.</p> Thu, 17 May 2012 21:21:00 +0000 Kenny Colston 374 at http://wfpl.org
