2015 General Election Results – Bevin Takes Governor Seat

KY2015govAs of 10:16 PM today, 100% of the counties have reported their results.  In Jefferson County, 193,875 ballots were cast for about a 35% turn out.  This figure is slightly higher than the state average, although some counties had a turnout in excess of 40%.  Throughout the Commonwealth, there are approximately 3.2 million registered voters.  With just under 1 million ballots cast today, the 2015 elections saw a voter participation rate of 30.7% – slightly higher than the previous gubernatorial election of 2011.  Fair autumn weather is thought to have played some part in this year’s increased turnout.

The state received 52 complaints of fraud throughout the day, with the highest concentration coming from Jefferson County, which tallied 13.  Statewide, complaints included reports of polling place disruption, vote buying and selling, and electioneering.
