Ernie Fletcher; Patrick J. Kelly II, a 26-year-old software engineer; and Curtis Kenimer, a horseman from Paris.
There will be no local races on the ballot.
Clark County Clerk Anita Jones said she expects about a 20 percent voter turnout, “because the Democrats don’t really have anything” to vote on.
“And I just can’t see that being a drawing card to get very many people out,” she said.
There are about 27,000 registered voters in Clark County, with a population of about 38,000, she said.
The deadline to register to vote on the primaries was April 23. The deadline to register to vote for the general election is Oct. 9. For more information, visit http://elect.ky.gov/voterinfo/Pages/voterinformationguide.aspx.
