 Turnout for the Nov. 3 general election was just over 30 percent, but turnout by party won't be available for a couple months. Democratic voter registration is higher than Republican registration – 1,685,054 to 1,259,542 – and if this year is like years past, more Ds voted than Rs.
Here are general election turnout percentages for the last three Kentucky governor’s races:

 2003 (Fletcher, R)
Democratic: 42.0
Republican: 40.5

2007 (Beshear, D)
Democratic: 40.8
