Primary election wrapping up in Christian Co. with slow turnout

The polls close at 6 p.m. in the May Primary Election, and it’s been a slow day with low turnout across the county.

Christian County Clerk Melinda Humphries says they only had the usual minor hiccups getting the polls open this morning, but since then, things have been running smoothly but slowly, with only about 2,300 people casting ballots as of 30 minutes before 6 p.m.

Humphries says they’ll have the results posted on the Christian County Clerk’s Office Facebook page as quickly as they can.

You can still vote if you’re standing in line at 6 p.m. The races included partisan Hopkinsville City Council races and the presidential primary for those running as Republican or Democrats. In Christian County, those voting centers are the Bruce Convention Center, the Christian County Courthouse, the Senior Citizens Center, the Oak Grove Community Center, Indian Hills Elementary School, New Barren Springs Church, New Palestine Baptist Church, Sinking Fork Baptist Church, Pembroke Baptist Church, South Christian Elementary School, the Walnut Street Center and Hopkinsville Middle School.

Pleasant Baptist Church, Guthrie Fire Department, Allegre Volunteer Fire Department and Helen’s.
