Grayson says extra voter enthusiasm isn't evident so far

Despite the saturation of news and ads about the U.S. Senate Race and other competitive contests, Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson said he does not expect an unusually large turnout at the polls on Nov. 2.

Grayson said turnout will be in line with past non-presidential elections, such as 2006 when 49.5% of Kentucky voters came to the polls.

Grayson is predicting 48% this year. He made the comments to reporters on Wednesday in Frankfort as state election officials discussed questions pertinent to the upcoming election.
