Kentucky Bill Moves Ahead, Would Switch Statewide Executive Office Elections from Odd Years to Presidential Years

Published on February 21, 2013, by in General.

Kentucky is one of only five states that elects its governor and most of its other statewide state executive offices in odd years instead of even years. On February 20, the Kentucky Senate State & Local Government Committee passed SB 55, which is a proposed constitutional amendment that would switch Kentucky statewide state offices from the odd year before a presidential election, to the presidential election year.

If the bill passes, then the voters would vote in November 2014 on whether the State Constitution should be changed in this way. The statewide officers elected in 2011 would then remain in office one more year than they had expected. For the transition, they would get 5-year terms instead of 4-year terms.

    Kentucky should switch its legislative elections to the odd year.

    If they move, they lose all the media attention. Keep it as is it.
