More than 550 candidates have filed with the Kentucky Secretary of State for various offices on the May 22, 2018 Primary Election Ballot. Of the candidates, nearly 100 of them are women running for seats in Kentucky’s General Assembly. The number of female candidates is said to be a record number. Secretary Alison Lundergan Grimes said she is encouraged by the number of candidates, and that our democracy is strengthened when more people are involved in the process, not just voting, but serving.
