Only 8.5 percent of registered voters in LaRue County turned out for Tuesday’s Primary Election.
There were no local races which accounted for low voter turnout, officials said. One state race was determined.
Former state rep. Dottie J. Sims of Horse Cave secured the Democratic nomination for the 19th District state representative by defeating Phinis Hundley of Hodgenville, 1,017 to 603.
Sims won both Hart (582 to 238) and Edmonson (156 to 54) Counties but lost LaRue County, 311 to 279.
