Step right up and vote

Ky. primaries won't draw big crowds

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        In November, so many people turned out to vote in Kentucky that some had to wait more than an hour. Secretary of State John Y. Brown III expects no such problems for Tuesday's primaries.

        With just two races, featuring candidates who have little name recognition in Northern Kentucky, election officials are predicting a voter turnout of 10 percent or lower.

        “I think I can pretty much assure you that any citizen who wants to vote Tuesday won't have to stand in line for 45 minutes,” Mr. Brown said. “They probably won't even have to stand in a line.”

        Republicans will elect a gubernatorial ticket to run in the fall against Democratic incumbents Gov. Paul Patton and Lt. Gov. Steve Henry, who are unopposed in the primary.

        Peppy Martin and running mate Wanda Cornelius are facing the husband-and-wife team of David L. Williams and Joanna Williams.

        The other statewide race is the Democratic primary for state treasurer. Susan Johns, a state lawmaker from Louisville, is running against Lexington attorney Jonathan Miller.

        The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

        Information: call the county clerk's offices in Boone (334-2110), Campbell (292-3845) or Kenton (491-4780).
