51,000 Kentucky Voters Have Cast Absentee Ballots

More than 51,000 Kentucky voters have cast absentee ballots ahead of the Nov. 6 election. Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says that's on par with the count two weeks ahead of the 2008 election.

Voters are also choosing a Supreme Court justice from eastern Kentucky and state legislators across the state.
