There are no statewide races on the ballot in Kentucky this year: no Senate contests, no constitutional offices. But there are tight contests peppered throughout the commonwealth.
Republicans are trying to take control of the state House this year. They need 10 seats to do so. Meanwhile, Democrats are trying to pick up a few Senate seats to bolster their slim minority.
There’s also a proposal on the ballot to amend the Kentucky state constitution to reinforce the rights of hunters and fishers.
