A tiny slice of Washington County will get to vote in the U.S. Representative Democratic Party primary for the Second District.
The Pottsville precinct, which was recently redrawn to be included in District 1, will be the only precinct in the county eligible to vote in the Congressional primary.
Voters who are registered as Democrats will have the chance to vote for James Buckmaster of Henderson or Charles Kendall Hatchett of Benton.
The winner of the primary will go on to run against long-standing representative Edward Whitfield, a Republican from Hopkinsville.
During the recent congressional redistricting process in Kentucky, a small part of Washington County was taken from Brett Guthrie’s district, the Second District, and put in Ed Whitfield’s district, the First District.
Registered Republican voters all across the county will get to weigh-in in the presidential primary.
Republican primary candidates still listed on the Kentucky Secretary of State’s website are Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.
Registered Democrats will get to vote in the circuit court clerk election, which will decide who will replace outgoing clerk George Graves.
John Graves and JoAnne Mudd-Miller are vying for the clerk’s position.
The primary election begins at 6 a.m. on May 22. Polling places close at 6 p.m. on the same day.
