State Board of Elections Certifies Results of General Election
Today, the State Board of Elections certified vote
totals from the Nov. 3 General Election and issued certificates of election to
candidates who received the highest number of votes. Detailed results from the
election are available at www.elect.ky.gov.
Approximately 982,000 Kentuckians, 30.69% percent of
registered voters, cast ballots in the General Election, said Alison Lundergan
Grimes, Kentucky’s chief election official.
Grimes also reconvened the Election Integrity Task
Force to wrap up its work on the 2015 General Election. Grimes has expanded the
task force since taking office, and the State Board worked closely with other
federal, state and local officials and agencies to monitor the election and
ensure that voters’ rights were preserved.
Pursuant to Kentucky law, the Office of the Attorney
General will randomly select six counties in which it will conduct a
post-election audit. The drawing to select the counties that will be audited is
scheduled for Nov. 19 at 10:30 a.m.
