Good morning, fine people. Thanks for joining us again on this special Tuesday in the Commonwealth: Primary Election Day.
We’ll be here all day and night with the latest up-to-date election coverage, but for now, here’s the info you need.
Please remember, both Adair and Russell counties’ county clerks’ offices are closed today. Voting got underway bright and early this morning, at 6 a.m. and will continue until 6 p.m., at which time officials will transport ballots to each county’s courthouse for tallying — a process that is always open to the public.
Russell County voters may vote at any one of three voting centers: The Levee Building (behind the courthouse), Salem Elementary School, and the RECC Community Room. In Adair County, voters today are required to cast their ballot at their respective precinct of record, the locations of which are available here. All voters are required to show a valid Kentucky ID.
To see the list of candidates for both Adair and Russell County, check our election guide.
Moving on, we’re wishing a special County Line birthday today to Donnie Whitis. We hope it’s a good one!
Keeping things short and sweet as I run already an hour behind this morning, we’ll close with a quick weather report from the tireless intern. Thanks for reading!
At 7:30 a.m. its 58 degrees at The County Line’s Russell Springs headquarters, and intern correspondents in Columbia and Jamestown report temps of 57 and 58 degrees, respectively. Expect these numbers to rise rapidly throughout the morning, reaching an early-afternoon high of more than 80. There’s no rain in sight, and expect plenty of sunshine.
