Primary Election Day is Tuesday, May 22.
Polls are open 6 a.m.-6 p.m.
County Clerk Linda Carter reminds voters to check on their voting district before the election as some changes were made last year.
The Democratic primary race for 19th District state representative may draw the most attention in what is expected to be a low turnout election.
Newcomer Phinis Vernon Hundley, Hodgenville, and former state representative Dottie J. Sims, Horse Cave, are on the ballot.
The winner will face Republican Michael Meredith of Brownsville in the fall.
Republicans have a chance to vote for their favorite presidential candidate: Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
President Barack Obama and “uncommitted” are the choices on the Democrat’s ticket.
No local races are contested.
Incumbent Circuit Court Clerk Larry Bell, a Democrat, is the only candidate to file for the office. He is assured of a third six-year term and will not appear on the May ballot.
Other candidates who do not face opposition in the primary and will not appear on the primary ballot are:
• Terry L. Geogehegan (D) has filed for Commonwealth’s Attorney which covers the 10th Judicial District of LaRue, Hart and Nelson Counties.
• U.S. Representative, 2nd District – S. Brett Guthrie (R), Bowling Green
• U.S. Representative, 2nd District David L. Williams (D), Glasgow
• State Representative, 5th District – Carroll Gibson (R), Leitchfield
Non-partisan candidates for city council and school board can file for those offices by Aug. 14. All city council seats are up for grabs. Terms are two years.
Four school board seats are up for election. They are District 1 - Hodgenville West and Lyons; District 2 - Hodgenville East and White City; and District 4 - Magnolia, Upton and Barren Run. Incumbents are Norbert Skees, Ronnie Chelf and Price Smith. The District 5 seat - Hodgenville, Mount Sherman, Otter and Attilla - will also appear on the ballot due to the resignation of Dick Greenwell. Joanna Hinton was appointed to the seat.
Candidates for Soil and Water Conservation Board must also file by Aug. 14.
