LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky State Board of Elections has certified the results from the state's May 17 primary.

This is according to a news release issued Tuesday from the Office of the Secretary of State.

Election officials have also issued certificates of nomination to candidates who received the most votes in the primary.

Officials say close to 670,000 Kentucky residents voted in the primary. That's about 20.7 percent of registered voters.

Less than 2,000 votes separated winner Hillary Clinton from opponent Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary for President. A statewide recanvass was conducted last week at Sanders' request, but did not alter the results.
