What's in the news this week...

Crittenden County’s top election official anticipates fewer than 1 in 5 voters to turn out Tuesday. “My initial guess was 17 percent, and I'm starting to get worried about that,” County Clerk Carolyn Byford said last week, gauging by the low number of absentee ballots cast by that time. Tuesday is primary election day in Kentucky. Republicans and Democrats will go to the polls to select their respective nominees for statewide constitutional races that will be decided in November. Chief among them will be the contests for gubernatorial nominations.
