Update: Turnout numbers:

Rain slicked some polling places and Kentucky Secretary of State spokesman Les Fugate said turnout my midday appeared to be low. It was expected to total around 30 percent statewide by the end of the day, he said.

That would compare to between 25 and 30 percent in the 2008 presidential primary and about 21 percent in 2007 with a gubernatorial primary on the ballot. Turnout in 2002, which had a similar assortment of races on the ballot, was just above 31 percent.

You know what would help Kentucky turnout? Poll closing times that actually gave working people time to get to the polls. 6 p.m. is ridiculous.

Also, I forgot that the Central Time part of the state doesn't close until 6 p.m. central.

Update II: Bob Shrum on TV now agrees that Halter and Sestak would be stronger general election candidates for the Dems. No shit, Sherlock, but welcome to the club. Apparently, at least one person in the clubby establishment has started reading the polls.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
