LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Coronavirus pandemic has triggered unprecedented election disruptions across the country. Now, eyes are on Kentucky, where only one polling place has been designated for Louisville, the state’s largest city, in today’s primary election.
Voters who didn’t cast mail-in ballots could face long lines. Kentucky turned to widespread mail-in absentee voting in an agreement between the state’s Democratic governor and Republican secretary of state in response to the pandemic. But voters not requesting absentee ballots will have to show up today.

The state’s primary, typically in late May, was delayed more than a month.
