We're fanning out across Kentucky and Ohio to cover today's big races.

It's Election Day...again!

But, for once West Virginians get to stay home.

The hotly contested debate over Issue 2 will be resolved today when voters give the controversial Senate Bill 5 an up-or-down vote. This is the vote that's getting a lot of national attention, as people in Washington look for indicators of what President Obama and his eventual Republican opponent can expect in Ohio in 2012. Randy Yohe will be covering this issue for us.

Meanwhile, I'm about to get on the road to Frankfort to cover Kentucky's gubernatorial race. The most recent poll by SurveyUSA shows the breakdown like this:

Steve Beshear (D): 54 percent, David Williams (R): 29 percent, Gatewood Galbraith (I): 9 percent. The survey was conducted October 28 and November 1.

See you on First at Five!
