Kentucky Likely to Have Record Number of Voters

Kentucky will likely have a record number of registered voters in the upcoming general election.Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Les Fugate says his office has been flooded with voter registration cards."The State Board of Elections has basically had to put all of their staff onto processing these voter registration cards," says Fugate. "And through different county clerk’s offices throughout the state, we’ve heard they’ve increased staff as well as extended their time, some of the counties up in northern Kentucky are having their county clerks working twelve hour shifts, just to get all the cards processed in time."As of September 15th, there were just under 2.9 million voters in Kentucky, which is in itself a record.But Fugate says that number is constantly changing up to the deadline. Final numbers will be available about a week after the voter registration deadline, which is Monday.
