High turnout for KY Primary - WDRB 41 Louisville News

High turnout for KY Primary

It's Kentucky's turn in the primary spotlight.  Voters are turning out in higher than usual numbers.  And some voters are dealing with exit polling for the first time.

As expected, turnout in Jefferson County has been heavy for a primary.

At one west Louisville precinct there were no long lines, but it was a steady stream of voters all day long.

While state and local races are on the ballot, it's the Democratic presidential race between Barrack Obama and Hilliary Clinton that brought many voters out on Tuesday.

For the first time anyone can remember in Jefferson County exit, polling is underway at eleven voting locations.

Results of the polling will be broadcast by the national news organizations.  Voting for the most part has gone smoothly, but there were a few glitches.

One west Louisvillle precinct opened 20 minutes late, causing some people to miss the chance to vote.

The polls are open until six o'clock.  Everyone who is in line by then will get to vote.  And remember you will need some kind of ID to be allowed to vote.
