The legislature has created nine new judgeships which will be subject to election this fall.  If you are interested in being a candidate, you must file for these offices no later than Jan. 30, 2007.  Candidates may file their papers beginning Tuesday Jan. 2, 2007.

The Judicial Nominating Commissions of the various nine districts will be making nominations to the Governor for these nine positions in the near future.  The judges appointed will serve until the election in November.

The judgeships will be in the judicial districts covering:

Allen, Boone, Bourbon, Breathitt, Clark, Gallatin, Hardin, Hopkins, Madison, Powell, Russell, Scott, Simpson, Warren, Wayne, Wolfe and Woodford counties.

Some of these positions are for District Judges who will serve until 2010, and Circuit Judges who will serve until 2014.
