Kentucky Special Election Scheduled for February 22
Gov. Andy Beshear announced a special election on February 22, 2022, to fill the vacancy in Kentucky House District 42 created by the resignation of Rep. Reginald Meeks.
Under state law, when a legislator vacancy occurs while lawmakers are not in session, the Governor may call the special election.
Meeks, who has represented House District 42 since January 2001, announced his retirement December 17, saying that he needed time to focus on his health and family.
The winner of the election will take office as soon as the results are certified by both the Jefferson County Board of Elections and the State Board of Elections.
