|Big voter turnout expected in Christian Co.|
A presidential election usually means a big turnout of voters and that’s expected to be the case Tuesday in Christian County.
Christian County Elections Coordinator Melinda Humphries says the County Clerk’s Office is expecting a lot of ballots to be cast by the time the polls close at 6pm.
Ms. Humphries is encouraging voters to be patient and to be aware there could be lines at their precinct.
The election phone number at the Christian County Clerk’s office is 887-4107 and the office will be closed for all non-election business.
There are some changes in precinct locations from the last General Election. Those who have voted at Christian County Middle School in the past should vote in the new Christian County Middle School building across the street this time around.
Voters who normally cast a ballot at North Drive Middle School will instead vote at Christian County Middle School and those who usually vote at Faith Lutheran Church will now do so at Indian Hills Elementary School.
Those who voted in the past at the Public Library will now vote at Pennyrile Electric and voters who have gone to First Christian Church to vote before will now go to St. Johns United Methodist Church instead. One of the more subtle changes is a move next door from Hopkinsville High School to Hopkinsville Middle for voters in that precinct.
Polls will be open from 6am until 6pm across Kentucky and we will begin our election coverage on all of the WHOP Family of Stations at 6pm.
