(WEHT) – Voter turnout in Kentucky was considerably higher on Tuesday than in past elections.
The unofficial turnout was just over 42% of eligible voters.
More than 1.4 million Kentuckians cast a ballot.
Both those numbers far outpace the previous gubernatorial election in 2015.
Locally, both Hancock County and McLean County were among the highest turnouts in the state – both above 50%.
Henderson County was the lowest in our area at 37%.
