Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says the lack of interest among Kentucky&#39;s nearly 3 million voters has to do with the already sewn-up Republican presidential primary, as well as limited opposition for congressional and legislative seats up for election this year. Early voting has been minimal thus far, further signifying that interest is lagging. Based on that and other indicators, Grimes predicts a turnout between 10 and 12 percent.
