Wet-dry vote, city commissioners also drive Jessamine turnout
JESSAMINE COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Just about everyone knows about the Presidential race, U.S. Senate race and the Congressional races in Kentucky.
It’s hard to turn on the TV or radio without hearing commercials or news coverage.
But some counties have local races that also are at least as important and and that means they are generating voter turnout.
In Jessamine County, Nicholasville is electing city commissioners and voters are deciding whether to allow alcohol sales in the county.
“The City Commission races are generating a lot of interest and Make Jessamine Wet has brought some people out,” said County Clerk Johnny Collier.
In addition to the wet-dry issue, voters will elect four city commissioners in at-large voting. Three incumbents are among eight names on the ballot after one didn’t seek another term and voters narrowed the field from 12 to eight in the June primary.
