Kentucky has closed primaries, meaning that you may only vote for the candidates within the party you are registered with. Candidates for each position are listed in the order they appear on the sample ballot. Each candidate's name is linked to their page on Ballotpedia, a nonpartisan and nonprofit digital encyclopedia of American politics and elections.

💭 Unsolicited advice from Hello Murray:
Research each candidate prior to voting. Print off a copy of the sample ballot with your preferred candidates filled in. You can take your sample ballot in while you vote, which will make voting quick and easy!
