Following the retirement of Kentucky State Representative Reginald Meeks, the Jefferson County Clerk's Office will hold a Special Election for the 42nd Legislative District on February 22, 2022. Only those residents who live in the 42nd Legislative District will be voting during this Special Election. Under new Kentucky law, voters will have the chance to participate in three days of early in-person no-excuse absentee voting the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday before Election Day. We will open the normal precincts for that legislative district on Election Day. A drop-box for mail-in absentee ballots will be located at the Election Center — 1000 E. Liberty Street.

An election of this kind is rare and only occurs when a House seat is vacant. This special election allows residents of the 42nd Legislative District to have their voices heard by electing their new member of the Kentucky House of Representatives. To see if you are eligible to vote in this special election, please go to our website, elections.jeffersoncountyclerk.org, and click the "Where Do I Vote" button and enter your address in the field.

I encourage the residents of the 42nd legislative district to come out and vote. The Jefferson County Clerk's Office remains hard at work ensuring the security and integrity of this special election.
