Last minute preparations are underway for tomorrow’s primary election in Kentucky.

Spokesperson Nore Ghibaudy with the Jefferson County Clerk’s office says they’re still doing absentee voting through the close of business today.

He says statewide voter turnout is predicted to be as low as 17%, but they think it’ll be a little higher in Louisville.

“We do have 488,523 registered voters,” says Ghibaudy, “and out of those registered voters, we’re expecting anywhere from a 22% to 25% turnout, based on previous years where there’s been a mayoral race during a primary.”

Ghibaudy says voters can check their polling locations and see a sample ballot for their precinct at the clerk’s online voter information center.
