LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky voters have until 6 o'clock tonight to vote in the primary election -- but this morning one candidate had a little trouble casting a vote for himself.
U.S. Senate Candidate Matt Bevin made light of a glitch he ran into while casting his vote.
"Uh-oh, I'm being rejected," Bevin said. "Is this what happens for everyone who votes Bevin?"
The issue was quickly resolved and Bevin cast his ballot.
Bevin is the Republican running against U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, who also cast his ballot this morning. There are smaller races on some ballots, including districts with spots for Metro Council.
Voters say it took them less than five minutes to make their selections.
"It might just be a primary, but it's the one way we still have a say in our government, so I always make sure I exercise that right," said voter David Stanley.
Alison Lundergan Grimes is the front-running candidate on the Democratic side for U.S. Senate. She's already looking ahead to the fall election to take down McConnell. There's a lot on the line. McConnell winning in the fall would help swing control of the Senate to the Republicans.
