Secretary of State Adams projects 15 percent voter turnout for May primary

Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams is projecting a somewhat low voter turnout for the upcoming May primary.

Adams said in a recent interview that he projects voter turnout to be around 15 percent for the primary, which would be lower than turnout four years ago when statewide voter turnout was around 19 percent.

Adams said he hopes statewide turnout is closer to 19 percent though.

In Russell County, voter turnout for the primary election in May 2019 was 22.4 percent, which was slightly higher than May 2015 when it was 20.2 percent while statewide turnout that year was 12.5 percent.
