FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The secretary of state says a record 3.1 million Kentuckians are registered to vote for the May 20 primary elections.
The number beats the previous record of just over 3 million registered voters for the 2012 general elections.
Registered Democrats grew by 0.41 percent while registered Republicans grew by 3.9 percent. Democrats still outnumber Republicans by more than 476,000 voters.
Independent voters increased 7.5 percent to more than 236,000. More than half of the voters are women.
