About the Board

The Electoral Board consists of three members. Two members represent the party that received the most votes in the prior gubernatorial election. The third member represents the party that received the second highest number of votes in the prior gubernatorial election. The appropriate political party must submit three names to the Circuit Court judges. The court appoints one person each year to serve a three-year term.

Responsibilities

The Electoral Board appoints the voter registrar for a four-year term. It also appoints officers of election to work at the polls on election days. Additionally, the board conducts all general and special elections. After each election, it meets to canvass the vote for Lexington City and certifies the results to the State Board of Elections.
