Local political filings for 2022 have slowed down over the past several days. As of this morning 23 people have filed for a position on the ballot next year, with the majority of those coming the first few days after the filing window opened.
Under Kentucky law, the filing window continues, until 4:00 pm local time on January 7, 2022. Offices that will be on the ballot locally in 2022 will include County Judge-Executive, Sheriff, County Clerk, Jailer, PVA, Coroner, County Attorney, and all four Magistrates and all four Constables. The primary for both parties in Kentucky will be next May with the General Election in November 2022. Filing will open later for positions on the ballot in November for Mayor and City Council. Those interested can apply in the county clerk’s office at the courthouse.
