The November 6, 2012, General Election is just over one week away, and Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is encouraging voters to educate themselves about the candidates and issues they will see on their ballots. “Voting is a cherished right,” said Grimes, “but it is also a responsibility. I hope voters will take that responsibility seriously and make informed choices on Election Day.”

Offices that will be on the ballot on November 6th include:

• President and Vice President of the United States
• United States Representative
• State Senator (odd districts)
• State Representative
• Local School Board (where applicable)
• Kentucky Supreme Court Justice, District 7
• Judge of the Court of Appeals, 4th Appellate District, 1st Division (unexpired term)
• Circuit Judge, 27th Circuit, 2nd Division (unexpired term)
• Circuit Judge, 29th Circuit (unexpired term)
• Circuit Judge, 30th Circuit, 10th Division (unexpired term)
• District Judge, 57th District (unexpired term)
• Commonwealth’s Attorney
• Circuit Clerk
• Mayor (where applicable)
• City Legislative Body Member
• Lexington/Fayette Urban County Council Member (district-specific)
• Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government Legislative Council Member (even districts)

In addition, voters will be asked whether to amend the Kentucky Constitution to specifically provide a personal right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife. There may also be local referenda and races for municipal, school board or local offices with unexpired terms on the ballot, so Grimes urges voters to review the ballot and familiarize themselves with the candidates before heading to the polls. Sample ballots and information about the candidates are available online.
