Deadline for candidates to file for office approaching

The November 2023 General Election ended just over a month ago, but now attention is turning to the 2024 May Primary election.

Next year’s primary, which determines candidates from their respective parties, is still five months away, but the deadline to file for office to be on the primary ballot in May is quickly approaching.

County Clerk Patti Glover announced the deadline to file as a candidate for the 2024 primary races is Friday, Jan. 5, at 4 p.m. local time.

The deadline to file, which has traditionally been the last Tuesday in January, was moved up to Jan. 5 by the Kentucky legislature.

Local offices on the ballot include State Representative, State Senator, Commonwealth’s Attorney, Circuit Court Clerk, School board seats in districts 1, 3, and 5; as well as city council seats.
