LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials say voter turnout is not likely to reach the record levels set in the 2004 election.
Les Fugate, a spokesman for the Secretary of State's office, said based on unofficial results, it appears fewer than 65 percent of Kentucky's 2.9 million registered voters cast ballots on Tuesday.
Secretary of State Trey Grayson had previously said he expected 65 to 70 percent voter turnout, which would have shattered the record set in 2004. Fugate said with 92 percent of precincts reporting, only 16 counties had beaten their 2004 voter turnout percentage.
He said one county that did appear to have a record turnout, however, was Jefferson County.
