MURRAY – With redistricting decisions related to the 2020 U.S. Census depending on the upcoming legislative session in January, county election boards across Kentucky are more or less in limbo for the moment. Even so, Calloway County Clerk Antonia Faulkner said she is trying to prepare for anything that comes her way in the coming months.

The Calloway County Board of Elections met Tuesday morning, and while there wasn’t much business on hand, board members discussed what to expect in a very busy 2022 election cycle. Faulkner said the first day to file under a party affiliation or for nonpartisan elections is Nov. 3, 2021, and the deadline to file is 4 p.m. Jan. 7, 2022. She said Independents have until June 7 to file, and write-in candidates have until Oct. 28, 2022. Write-in candidates’ names don’t appear on the ballot, so voters must put their name down on their ballots.
