“Libertarians Win Fight Against Kentucky on Voting”

Courthouse News:

A change to the deadline for independent political candidates to register for elections signed is unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

Kentucky House Bill 114, signed into law by former Governor Matt Bevin in March 2019, changed the deadline for state and local candidates to declare their candidacy from April 1 to the last Tuesday in January.

The law was made retroactive to include 2019, and prevented several Libertarian candidates from filing their statements of candidacy with the board of elections.
