So Kentucky, like a lot of other states, now boast record-high voter registration.
It doesn't matter unless all those registered voters actually get to the polls.
That's the goal now. Forget everything else.
From the Herald:
A record number of Kentuckians will be eligible to vote on Election Day, according to Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.More than 3.3 million people are registered to vote in the November election, an increase of more than 50,000 from the primary election.Grimes said 106,000 voters have registered since March, when the state unveiled its online voter registration system.About 30 percent of all new voters registered online, with younger voters using the online system the most.“I’m really proud of the work that we’ve done to launch online voter registration,” Grimes said. “It’s an enormous success in Kentucky.”
