Polls Are Now Open

WBKO (AP) -- Kentucky voters are heading to the polls for a primary election headlined by a hotly contested U.S. Senate race.

But voters Tuesday will also choose nominees for state legislative races, with all 100 seats in the Kentucky House and half of the state Senate's 38 seats on the ballot this year. Congressional and state appellate court seats are also in play, as well as races involving local judges, council members, clerks and others.

The secretary of state said last week about 30 percent of registered voters are expected to cast ballots.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time. Anyone in line by 6 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

Sunshine with highs in the lower to mid-80s was in the forecast for much of the state.
