Voters will head to the polls Tuesday for Kentucky's primary election, and voters in Jefferson County can expect to use new technology.
If you weren't one of the 2,148 people who cast an in-house absentee ballot at the Jefferson County Election Center, there's some things you'll need to bring to the polls
"One of the most important things to do is for folks to remember to bring their identity with them, their driver's license or passport," " said Nore Ghibaudy, spokesperson at the Jefferson County Clerk's Office.
You'll also need to double check your polling place on the Jefferson County Clerk's website.
"We do have 34 precincts or 18 locations that have moved since a year ago when they voted," Ghibaudy said.
So if you've voted at the same place for years and didn't know your polling place is new, Ghibaudy said there will be sign that will direct voters to the correct spot.
Voters can also expect to see all-new equipment for this election. You can either fill out a ballot by hand or use the new touch screen option.
"AccuTouch actually meets all the American Disabilities Act requirements, but it doesn't mean you have to be disabled to use it," Ghibaudy said.
More than 591,000 voters are registered, but 18-22 percent turnout is expected in Jefferson County.
"For a primary, those are pretty good numbers," Ghibaudy said.
Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
