On Monday, Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams announced that a special election will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 to fill vacancies for two representatives and one senator in the Kentucky General Assembly.
The special election will be held for the following seats:
51st House District, representing Adair and Taylor Counties, previously held by Representative John “Bam” Carney who passed away in July.
89th House District, representing Jackson County and parts of Laurel and Madison Counties, previously held by Representative Robert Goforth who resigned in August.
22nd Senate District, representing Garrard, Jessamine, Mercer and Washington Counties, and part of Fayette County, previously held by Senator Tom Buford who passed away in July.
“These special elections will be historic – the first held following Kentucky’s most significant election reform since 1891,” Adams said. “I’m excited to now implement our nationally praised law that makes it easier to vote and harder to cheat.”
