Secretary of State Grimes to Verify Candidates for 2019 Primary Election Ballot

On Monday, February 11, 2019, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes will certify candidates’ legal names for the printing of the 2019 Primary Election Ballot. Secretary Grimes, Kentucky’s chief election official, said her office receive a written complaint from a candidate for Secretary of State that another candidate sought to have his name appear on the primary election ballot accompanied by the purported nickname “Trump!” Pursuant to the statutory authority granted to the Secretary of State, the office determined the candidate in question offered this so-called nickname in an attempt to gain an advantage on the ballot. Only the candidate’s legal name will be certified to appear on the ballot.
