Kentucky’s governor election had the state’s highest voter turnout since 1995, data shows

Kentucky officials reported a higher-than-expected voter turnout in Tuesday’s statewide elections that ended dramatically with Democratic candidate Andy Beshear declaring victory over incumbent Republican Gov. Matt Bevin, who has not conceded. The Secretary of State’s Office said 1,455,161 voters — or 42.16% of the Bluegrass State’s 3,451,537 registered voters — cast ballots in Tuesday’s election. That’s better than the 31% turnout rate that Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes predicted ahead of the election and higher than the 30.7% of voters who turned out when Bevin was elected governor in 2015.
