McCracken County Clerk Julie Griggs says she will be releasing election results Monday at 4 p.m. in the County Clerk's Office. 

As of 1:45 p.m., Griggs says there have been 1,100 bad ballots; 15,781 mailed-out ballots, however, this number is not concrete because some people received a mail-in ballot and came to vote in-person; 87% return on mail in ballots, and Monday they counted the last 118 mail-in ballots. 

Griggs tells Local 6 she believes voter turnout will be near 30% when this batch is totaled.
