Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes predicts a record number of voters will cast ballots in the November 6th General Election, with statewide voter turnout likely between 62 and 64 percent. “Voters have many important decisions to make on Election Day,” said Grimes. “I urge all eligible Kentuckians to be a part of the process and make their voices heard.”

Grimes said that to date, absentee voting activity is on par with the 2008 General Election. With approximately 130,000 more registered voters compared with 2008, Grimes predicts a record number of ballots will be cast in the November 6th election.

Grimes’ prediction hinges on the impact superstorm Sandy may have on the Commonwealth, the full extent of which is not yet known. “I am working closely with our county clerks to monitor the effects of Sandy on our election and to ensure that all Kentuckians’ right to vote on November 6th is preserved,” said Grimes.

With only one week remaining until Election Day, Grimes reminds voters to visit the Voter Information Center to verify the location of their polling places and view sample ballots.
