As the constitutional officers of the Commonwealth’s executive branch prepare for their swearing-in, other Kentucky citizens are already preparing for next year’s elections. In addition to the 2024 presidential election, Kentucky citizens will be choosing state representatives, state senators, and state judges. The January 5 filing deadline for these candidates is quickly approaching. Join us in praying for all our statewide elected leaders.
