WHITESBURG, Ky (WYMT) - If you hoped to file to run in the upcoming election and have not yet, you will have to wait until next time.
Tuesday was the last day to declare your candidacy for this year's election. At the Letcher County Clerk's Office, employees tell WYMT they saw a few stragglers coming by to fill out the proper paper work.
However, County Clerk Winston Meade said this year's numbers are down slightly.
"We have had 53 people file so far, county wide and the last election, or in 2010, we had 75 locals file," said Meade.
The primary is slated for May 20th. This year's general election is on November 4th.
