Local Races Fill Primary Election Ballots

LOUISVILLLE, Ky. -- Kentuckians will go to the polls Tuesday to choose their parties' candidates in the primary election.

The Jefferson County Clerk is predicting voter turnout will be between 18-and-20 percent.     Statewide turnout is projected to be 30 percent -- high for a primary -- thanks to a large number of local races on the ballots.

All 100 state House seats are up for grabs this year,  as well as half of the 38 Senate seats.   Among the challengers are several dozen current or former teachers who are running for office after the legislature approved a controversial pension bill.   

In Louisville, there are primary races for mayor, metro council and county attorney, as well as non-partisan judicial races.

The polls are open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time.
