Polls close, 2019 Kentucky Primary results begin to roll in

Polls open for Kentucky Primary

COVINGTON, KY. (FOX19) - Kentucky polls were open until 6 p.m. Tuesday as voters select nominees for governor and other statewide races.

One of the most closely-watched races will be who is on the Democratic ticket in the governor’s race this fall. It’s a four-way race between State Rep. Rocky Adkins, Attorney General Andy Beshear, former state auditor Adam Edelen and activist Geoff Young. On the Republican side, Gov. Matt Bevin will face State Rep. Robert Goforth, Ike Lawrence, and William Woods.

Primary voters also will have the pick for secretary of state, where four candidates on both sides are vying for the seat; attorney general, and commissioner of agriculture.

More than 3.4 million Kentuckians are registered to vote, according to Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. She projected that just 12.5 percent of registered voters would turn out.
