Promotions producer Kevin Rivers says the poll has been hosted by WHO-TV at the fair for at least a decade, according. Fair goers drop kernels into jars marked with the candidates faces. Fairgoers aged 18 and up can vote once a day for free.
By midday Saturday — the final day of the fair — nearly 50,000 votes had been cast. On the GOP side, businessman Trump led with 12,022 votes. With Democrats, former Secretary of State Clinton led with 8,757 votes.
