KY Sets Record with New Voter Registration
FRANKFORT, KY - A record number of Kentuckians are registered to vote in the Nov. 6 election.
Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes said Thursday that 57,145 new voters have been added to the rolls since May. That brings the total number of Kentuckians eligible to vote next month to more than 3 million.
Grimes said she hopes the record number of voters translates into record voter turnout on Election Day.
Kentucky has added more than 130,000 voters since the 2008 presidential election.
Besides the presidential race, Kentucky voters will choose congressmen, state lawmakers and a state Supreme Court justice, as well as several lower court judges and commonwealth's attorneys.
