Potential candidates interested in running for office in the Nov. 6 general election have until 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, to file with the Clark County Clerk’s office.
Several local races are on the Nov. 6 ballot, with all four seats on the Winchester Board of Commissioners up for grabs, as well as three Clark County Board of Education seats and the 73rd District Kentucky House of Representatives seat.
Five people have filed so far for the four non-partisan City Commission seats — incumbent commissioners Shannon Cox, Kenny Book, Kitty Strode and Rick Beach, as well as former mayoral candidate Ralph Harrison. The top four vote-getters will be elected to the Commission.
Only two candidates have filed for the three School Board seats. Incumbent Debbie Fatkin has filed for the District 3 seat, while Beth Griffith has filed for the District 2 seat currently held by B.J. Swope. No one has filed for the District 5 seat currently held by Deanna Wolfe.
Incumbent Paula Joslin has no opposition in the partisan election for Clark County Circuit Clerk.
In statewide races, two candidates have filed for the 73rd District House seat. First-term Republican incumbent Donna Mayfield is being challenged by Democrat and current Clark County Commissioner JoEllen Reed. In another statewide race, voters will choose between incumbent Democrat Ben Chandler and Republican Andy Barr in the Sixth District U.S. House of Representatives race.
