The primary ballot for Oldham County has been officially set.


Candidates lined up for the ballot draw last week at the county clerk’s office to select their positions on the 2014 primary ballot.

Sixteen county offices, including constable races, will be on the ballot for the primary.

Additionally, there will be a primary for La Grange mayor and for city council. As of the draw, the number of those running for council was 20. Keith Simpson and Linda Ballard Hall withdrew from the city council race before the ballot draw.

The primary will reduce the city council race to 16 candidates and the mayor’s race down to two candidates.

With the draw completed, the ballot is officially set whether or not other candidates withdraw, County Clerk Julie Barr said.

The primary is May 20.
