More than 32,000 Kentuckians signed up for the Kentucky health exchange, kynect, in the first month of its existence, according to numbers released Friday by the governor's office.

More than 40 percent of the people who have signed up are younger than 35 years old. There are sign-ups from every county, with more than 16-hundred in Fayette County.

About 43 percent of the people have picked the silver level plan, followed by platinum at 26 percent, gold at 16, and bronze at 13.

Governor Steve Beshear says the Affordable Care Act is working in Kentucky. "Kentuckians are still stampeding to the website and call center to find affordable health coverage," he said in a statement.
