LOUISVILLE — Democratic and Republican candidates for governor cast their ballots Tuesday morning in their home precincts of Louisville.

With kids in tow, Attorney General and Democratic nominee Jack Conway and his wife, Elizabeth, voted in Louisville at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 8:30 am Tuesday morning.

Speaking with reporters after casting his ballot, Conway said “I feel really good,” with hours left before the polls close.

“My first grade teacher showed up at the welcome home rally last night, and then I checked the mail and had a note from my third grade teacher, so things like that make you realize that you are not running…for yourself but you’re running for other people,” Conway said.

Meanwhile, GOP nominee and investment manager Matt Bevin and his wife Glenna, cast their ballots Tuesday morning at the Presbyterian Seminary Winn Center in Louisville. Bevin also had his eight children with him at his polling place.

Bevin spoke with reporters on hand about “the privilege to vote,” and said with the clear skies and mild weather there’s “no excuse for people not to turn out and vote.”

“I feel good, I really do” Bevin said. “The momentum has shifted in recent days – it’s on our side the enthusiasm is there it really ends up being a function of who turns out to vote.”
