Lexington Mayoral Candidates Urge Everyone to Head to the Polls

In a battle between three contenders for the Lexington Mayoral seat, voters will decide which two will move on to the general election in November.

All three candidates arrived at the polls this morning, with incumbent Mayor Jim Gray hitting the booth early at around 6am. He marked his ballot at Harrison Elementary School.

Challenger Danny Mayer arrived later at Lexington Traditional Magnet School in downtown Lexington.

Former Lexington Police Chief Anthany Beatty rounded out the group at 10am as he cast his vote at Highlands Baptist Church.

The three candidates are encouraging everyone to head to the polls and let their vote be heard.

Polls will remain open until 6pm and everyone must show proper identification or be recognized by a precinct officer before walking into the booth.

Anyone who needs to register to vote, needs to know where to vote or who they can elect can visit the State Board of Elections website at elect.ky.gov.

If you happen to see problems while you are voting, you may call the election-fraud hotline at 1-800-328-8683.

As a reminder, alcohol will not be sold in Fayette County until the polls are closed.
