Bill would change state constitution, eliminate odd-year elections for state offices in Kentucky

A bill that is expected to be heard in the state senate today would eliminate odd-year elections for state offices such as Governor in Kentucky.

The bill, Senate Bill 10, would move the elections for statewide offices like Governor to even-numbered years.

Under the proposed bill, after the 2027 elections, Kentuckians would elect their Governor at the same time as they do the President of the United States.

If the bill passes, it would then have to be placed on the ballot to be approved or rejected by Kentucky voters because it involves changing the state constitution.

State law requires that any amendments to the state constitution be approved by voters as a ballot initiative.
