Owensboro Chamber Launches ‘Go Vote’ Campaign

Owensboro Go VoteOWENSBORO, Ky. (4/29/14) — The May 20 primary election will be an important day for Daviess County as it will determine who will be the community’s next Judge/Executive, but not everyone will have a say in the decision.

Both candidates for the position are Republicans, and no Democrats are on the ballot for the fall. This means that only those who are registered to vote as Republicans in Daviess County will have the chance to cast a vote for either of the candidates.

Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce President Amy Jackson told SurfKY News one of the key goals of the "Go Vote" initiative is to encourage Democrats who favor a particular candidate to spread the word among their Republican friends, and to do everything they can to get more people to the polls on Election Day.

The Chamber also provided video interviews with incumbent Al Mattingly and challenger Gary Boswell, respectively.

 

A written transcript of the interviews is available at the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce online.

On Tuesday, May 20, local Republicans who vote will also join other Republicans across the Commonwealth in determining whether career Senator Mitch McConnell will face Democratic challenger Allison Lundergan Grimes in November, or whether he will be unseated by challenger Matt Bevin.
