Kentucky Youth Advocates is committed to making the needs of children front and center each and every election season. While kids cannot vote, each of us can ensure that their voices are heard by engaging with candidates in local, state, and federal elections. Across the Commonwealth this November, Kentuckians will cast their ballot in the races for the full Kentucky House of Representatives and half of the Kentucky Senate, mayoral and other local government races, judicial elections, and races for U.S. Congressional seats.

In Louisville, voters will be deciding their next Mayor on November 8th. Jefferson County is home to 189,828 children — that’s 16 percent of the entire Kentucky child population. Below, candidates running to become Louisville’s next mayor share more about themselves and their priorities for the city’s youngest population.
