Louisville, KY - Home to over half a million voters has only ONE poll open

There was a time that Kentucky had 3500 polling places. They're down to just 200 now.
The most populated county has only one polling place for over half a million (predominantly Democratic) voters.

1. I know the new governor is a democrat, but, what is the Sec of State?

Sec of State is usually I charge of elections.

2. He's a Republican

This has a lot of details on the voting at the lone polling place. It isn't good - about a 2 hour wait at one point, but it's not nearly as bad as Georgia was.
Apparently the site they are using is HUGE - and they're very organized.

4. people are still being disenfranchised

6:00 p.m.: Democratic U.S. Senate Candidate Charles Booker has filed an injunction in Jefferson County Circuit Court, seeking to keep polls open in Louisville until 9pm. A spokesman for the campaign said Booker was filing the motion because there is currently a long line of cars waiting to get into the Kentucky Expo Center, the countyís only in-person election day polling place. Despite that injunction, the doors to the Expo Center closed at 6:00.

as long as people were in line they should of been allowed to vote and that includes the line to park
