Louisville Election Results
Once polls close in Louisville poll workers print out a report from the ballot boxes that looks much like a receipt. This starts the paper trail. Results are then turned into the County Clerk for municipal offices and the State Board of Elections receives the Judicial and National races.
Each entity releases these numbers. Anyone can find the vote numbers though as the paper receipt is taped inside a window of the polling place facing out. Reporters can run up and read who got what votes and report those to news outlets before they are released by the County Clerk or State Board.
On election day we’ll try to aggregate these sources here.
Projected Winners – Without A Vote Cast?
Each year offices go uncontested, simply no one signed up to challenge the current office holder or sometimes no one actually signs up. This is unfortunate because even the best public servant should have to participate in a discussion with voters ever so often and prove to us why they should be reelected. Elections are about choices and citizens willing to lead our community, this process makes the candidates better prepared to serve the populace.
With that said here are your projected winners with no votes cast.
School Board Races And The Future Of JCPS
With the state’s looming take over of Jefferson County Public Schools at bay for now the School Board races may be worth reviewing more than usual. How the embattled school system required more funds and voted to increase property taxes is worth considering. Especially when we consider that taxpayers spend $11,000 a year per student for the education that JCPS has given recently. The national average of $11,300 puts JCPS in the middle of the country in terms of spending.
We were unable to find a website for any candidate running for school board.
