Candidates who wish to be placed on the ballot for the May 19 Primary Election must file their candidacy papers by 4 p.m. EST at the Office of Secretary of State on Tuesday, Jan. 27.
The offices of governor and lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, auditor of public accounts, state treasurer and commissioner of agriculture are on the ballot in Kentucky in 2015.
“I recommend that candidates file in advance of the deadline in case filing papers need to be corrected,” Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky’s chief election official, said in a news release from her office.
Kentucky law does not provide an opportunity to correct or re-file paperwork after 4 p.m. on Jan. 27.
