Primary Election is tomorrow — if you haven’t already voted (early and/or absentee), vote Tuesday

Staff report

The Primary Election in Kentucky will take place tomorrow.

Kentucky conducts closed primaries which means only registered Republicans and registered Democrats can vote — and ONLY for the candidates on either the Republican or the Democrat ballot. If you have registered as an Independent, you cannot vote in the partisan primaries, but you may vote in all nonpartisan primaries. These include urban county mayor, urban county councils, school board, soil and water conservation, and all judicial offices. Only the City of Covington commission is on the ballot Tuesday — to reduce the number of candidates on the November ballot.

Polls are open at 6 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. You are eligible to vote if you are in line at 6 p.m.
