It’s Election Day in Kentucky and voters are steadily streaming to the polls. Les Fugate of the Secretary of State’s office says, so far, there have been few glitches reported around the state.

“Overall, we’ve had a couple of voting machines that were either not able to open right on time or temporarily went down during the middle of the day – nothing longer than about 45 minutes, from what we can tell, in terms of voters being inconvenienced.”

Fugate says turnout, as expected, is strongest in Louisville and Lexington. Secretary of State Trey Grayson is predicting voter turnout statewide will be around 48 percent. The polls remain open until 6:00 pm, local time.

Voter turnout appears to be mixed across Indiana.
