2012 VOTEHOPKINS COUNTY, KY (12/15/11) – According to Keenan Ratliff, Election Director for Hopkins County, the races have begun in Hopkins County for 2012.  Two candidates have already filed and three others have picked up papers to file.  Karen McKnight has filed for Circuit Court Clerk and James C.

Ben Waide has picked up his papers to file for reelection for State Representative 10th district.  Waide will file with the Kentucky Secretary of State.  David Massamore has picked up papers to file for reelection for Commonwealth Attorney.  Mark Cunningham has picked up papers to file for election to Madisonville Ward 6 currently held by Bill Smith.  
 
For Hopkins County, all three State Rep districts will be up for election in 2012, all city council positions as well as Hopkins County School Board districts 1, 3 and 5.  Dawson Springs Independent positions held by Chris Smiley and Earl Mensor, Jr. will be up also.  

The four Conservation District positions will all be up for election.  This is a partisan election but will only be on the primary ballot if more than four people run.  Currently John Calhoun, GG Kesterson Smith, Brian Hornback and Dan Herman serve on the Conservation District.
 
Filing deadlines for partisan elections (including Madisonville City Council) is January 31st, 2012 to qualify to run in the republican or democrat primary.  Independent candidates running for the same seats must file a Statement of Intent by April 1st and file by August 14th.  All non-partisan races such as other city councils and school boards must file to run by August 14.
 
Voters wishing to vote in the democratic or republican primary must be registered as a democrat or republican no later than December 31st.  The voter must decide which primary they want to participate by that time.  In the general election in November, all voters can vote in all races.  They will have the choice of the winners of the republican and democratic primaries plus independents that wish to run.
