Deadline for independent candidates to file statement of candidacy is April 1

March 26, 2014 — Pursuant to KRS 118.365(5) and KRS 118.367, individuals seeking to run as independent, political organization or political group candidates for certain partisan offices must file their Statement-of-Candidacy forms no later than Tuesday, April 1, 2014, at 4 p.m. in order to be placed on the ballot for the November general election.

There is no fee to file a Statement of Candidacy.

Candidates for federal offices and mayor or legislative body of cities of the second to sixth class that conduct partisan elections are exempt from this requirement.

Potential candidates should contact the Secretary of State’s office or their local county clerks to obtain the necessary paperwork.

The following offices that file with the Secretary of State and are scheduled for a regular election in 2014 require the filing of a Statement of Candidacy:

• State Senators in even-numbered districts

• State Representatives

Persons seeking to run for a county office as an independent, political organization or political group candidate are required to file with their local county clerks.

Independent, political organization and political group candidates must file petitions of nomination, with the appropriate filing fee, no later than Aug. 12.

If a potential candidate was required to file a Statement of Candidacy but failed to do so, the Secretary of State and county clerks’ offices cannot accept a petition from the candidate.

For information, visit the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ky.gov.
