 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A cool, sunny Election Day greeted voters across Kentucky casting ballots for president, Congress and a host of other offices down the ballot.
 
   At St. Matthews Baptist Church in Louisville, lines were steady Tuesday, as more than 100 voters cast ballots by 7:45 a.m.  Polls are open in the state Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time.
 
   Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes has predicted a record number of voters will cast their ballots.
 
   President Barack Obama yielded the state to GOP nominee Mitt Romney after a poor showing in the Democratic primary. Kentucky has a competitive congressional race in central Kentucky. Voters also will decide whether hunting and fishing should be a constitutional right in the state. Voters in eastern Kentucky will choose a Supreme Court justice.

   Voters in both states can help keep tabs on Tuesday's election.

   Staffers in Kentucky will answer an election fraud hotline beginning at 6 a.m. EST so that voters who see any irregularities can report them. The hotline number is (800) 328-8683.

   Indiana voters may call 866-461-8683 to report any irregularities.
