LOUISVILLE, Ky. — As we count down the days until Kentucky picks its next governor, we wanted to hear from voters on what issues matter to them in this race.
For Evan Kerr of Louisville, he says when picking a candidate he wanted to choose someone who supports the state’s big cities like Louisville and Lexington. Kerr points to aging infrastructure and public transit funding as some current issues.
“Just all these different things that make our cities and the people who live in them less secure, less prosperous and I’m going to vote for someone that won’t do that,” Kerr said.
A Kentucky native and Western Kentucky University graduate, Kerr says he is hopeful the person he’s supporting will work across the aisle with members of the other party on these issues.
In just over 10 days, Kentucky will elect its next governor. Incumbent Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear is seeking reelection, while Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron is looking to flip the state’s top office.
Kerr says he always takes part in elections and adds at this point, “My vote is set.”
Election Day is Nov. 7. If you are planning to vote early, there are a few days left to do so. The remaining excused early voting days are Oct. 26, 27, 30, 31, and Nov. 1. The no-excuse early voting days are Nov. 2-4.
