On Tuesday, June 5, 2018, the State Board of Elections certified vote totals from the May 22 Primary Election and issued certificates of nomination to candidates who received the highest number of votes in the election. Official results from the election are available at govoteky.com. More than 792.000 Kentuckians, approximately 23.5 percent of registered voters, cast ballots in the Primary. Several county boards of elections recanvassed the results of two judicial races and state House race, but the outcomes of the races were unchanged. The Board of Elections did not certify the results for the 30th Judicial District, 9th Division, in accordance with a court order. Danny Alvarez, the highest voted candidate, died a day after the May 22 Primary. The candidate with the third highest number of votes, Karen Faulkner, is currently suing to be on the General Election ballot. Kentucky law provides that the two candidates receiving the most vote in a judicial primary move to the General Election.
