The filing deadline for partisan candidates may be past, but there’s still time for voters and independent candidates to register.
April 23 will be the last day for people who are not registered to vote to register for the Primary Election. Those who are already registered have already missed the deadline for changing parties.
Anyone who will turn 18 before the November 6 General Election can also vote in the May 22 Primary Election.
Candidates seeking to run as independents have until April 2 to file a notice of intention to run, and until August 14 to file any petition or certificate required to run in the fall.
Partisan and some nonpartisan candidates have already filed for the Primary, and candidates have drawn for ballot position in Letcher County. There are no Republicans running in the races for state representative, District 5 magistrate, county attorney, coroner, county surveyor, or constables in district 3, 4, or 5.
