Voter Registration Deadline Looms in Kentucky
Monday is the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 3 election.
Topping the ballot this year is the race for governor, followed by other constitutional offices, including Secretary of State, Auditor, Treasurer, and Agriculture Commissioner.
Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says says it’s too soon to make turnout predictions.
"Our hope is that folks are not so inundated with the upcoming 2016 presidential election that they are forgetful of the duties and responsibilities on their shoulders for this election," Grimes told WKU Public Radio.
Turnout has varied in past gubernatorial elections, from 37 percent in 2007 to 28 percent in 2011.
Democrats outnumber Republicans in Kentucky by more than 430,000 registered voters.
County clerks’ offices throughout Kentucky will accept voter registration cards until the close of business Monday, Oct. 5.
Voters can find out if they are registered and check their current information online at www.sos.ky.gov.
