Voting ballot machine

LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- Kentuckians headed to the polls Tuesday to vote on a number of state-wide offices.

The Board of Elections is expecting a low voter turnout across the state, so Democratic governor candidates are hoping Louisville might be the deciding factor of who makes it on to the ballot in November.

The governor's race tops a ballot that includes contested primaries for Attorney General and Secretary of State.

Gov. Matt Bevin faces three GOP challengers, including state Rep. Robert Goforth. The leading Democrats running for governor are Attorney General Andy Beshear, ex-state auditor Adam Edelen and longtime state Rep. Rocky Adkins. Beshear is the son of Kentucky's last Democratic governor. With low turnout expected across the state, the Democratic candidates for governor are counting on Louisville for an edge.

Attorney General Andy Beshear and Louisville entrepreneur Gill Holland voted Tuesday morning. Holland is Edelen's running mate.

Polls are open across Kentucky from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Click here to find out where to vote in your area and to view a sample ballot.
