Looking for Kentucky election results? Check here! Results will be added as they come in.
2012 is a very important election year for Kentuckians. Not only will we be voting in the presidential election, but a huge number of federal, state, and local seats will also be up for a vote. Kentuckians will be able to vote on all six of Kentucky’s congressional seats, half of our state Senate seats, all of our state House seats, and a large number of local mayoral and city council races. There also is a constitutional amendment on the ballot.
On November 6th, registered voters in Kentucky will be able to choose who represents them over the coming years. Please take some time to browse this site to find out who is running for election in your part of the state and to learn where they stand on our issues.
Since 2004 Kentuckians For The Commonwealth has worked to empower voters through voter registration drives, voter education, and encouraging people to vote on election day.
“We want to get voters excited about the issues that matter to them and their communities. We are helping voters understand that who is in office does make a difference in terms of the decisions made that affect the issues we all care about.”
- Janet Tucker, KFTC Member
Since it is often difficult to find where candidates stand on issues, Kentuckians For The Commonwealth sent surveys to candidates around the state asking for their positions on a variety of topics important to Kentucky voters. We followed up vigorously and printed the answers here just as we received them. We applaud each and every candidate who, out of respect for voters, responded to this survey.
We encourage you to read what the candidates have to say with a critical eye, and as you do so you may notice a number of statements that one or more candidates didn’t get quite right – or in some cases got quite wrong. If so, we encourage independent research to sort out these questionable facts or statements.
We also encourage communication directly with candidates or their campaigns, to clarify and learn more about their positions. Where available, we’ve provided website addresses where you may find biographical information, endorsements, a list of public appearances, contact information and more.
We hope that this will help provide more definition between the candidates, create a public dialog on issues, and ultimately encourage more voters to vote on Election Day. Democracy works best when more people are informed and involved.
