Ky. turnout pegged at 30 percent for primaries

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Hours and hours of television commercials, months of campaigning and endless fundraising pitches have come to this - voters going to the polls.

Kentucky voters get their chance Tuesday to cast ballots in party primaries in multiple races, both statewide and local, in party primaries.

Kentucky Secretary of State spokesman Les Fugate says turnout is expected to be around 30 percent statewide. In 2008, with a presidential primary on the ballot, turnout came in at between 25 and 30 percent.

In 2007, with a gubernatorial primary on the ballot, turnout was about 21 percent. This year's ballot features U.S. Senate party primaries at the top of the ticket.
