KENTUCKY (WEHT) – Kentuckians will head to the polls next week, and the biggest race on the ballot will decide the candidates for governor.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is projecting a 12.5% turnout.

That number is based on current absentee voting patterns and would be consistent with past primary elections.

Grimes says the low turnout is not okay, and she hopes Kentuckians prove her prediction wrong.
