Thousands of poll workers have volunteered to ensure the election goes smoothly in Kentucky.  And so far, so good, for the most part, despite record turnouts.  At a relatively small downtown Louisville polling place, election workers say they’ve seen double the turnout they normally see.  But election official Michael Jones says that hasn’t caused any problems.

“No equipment problems. Just a few people with confusion on how to fill out their ballots.  But we’ve got that taken care of and really it’s been very smooth,” Jones says.

Jones says this is the first time he’s volunteered to help on election day.  He joins more than  two thousand other election day volunteers in Jefferson County. Downtown Louisville polling place.
