Predicted Turnout

Only about half of registered voters in Kentucky are expected to step inside a voting booth Tuesday.

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is expecting a record number of voters to cast ballots in next week's general election.

Grimes, the top state election officer, said Tuesday that legislative races seem to be generating enthusiasm among Kentucky voters. The presidential race, a competitive congressional race in central Kentucky and a heated Supreme Court race in eastern Kentucky also have voters revved.
