Ballot position drawing to be Aug. 14
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 29, 2014) — Independent, political organization and political group candidates running for most offices in Kentucky must file their petitions of nomination and pay the filing fee by Aug. 12. The paperwork must be received by the filing official by 4 p.m. prevailing local time.
Independent, political organization and political group candidates for many offices were required to file a statement-of-candidacy form no later than April 1, 2014, to be qualified. That prerequisite does not apply to candidates for federal offices, nonpartisan offices, and mayor or legislative body of cities of the second to sixth classes that conduct partisan elections.
Following the August 12 filing deadline, public drawings for ballot position will be held in the filing officials’ offices at 2 p.m. on Aug. 14.
