Kentucky House of Representatives2012 Kentucky Senate Elections
Elections for the office of Kentucky House of Representatives were held in Kentucky on November 6, 2012. All 100 seats were up for election.

The signature filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in these elections was initially set for January 31, 2012. Two hours before the deadline, Judge Phillip Shepherd postponed the deadline one week while he considers the constitutionality of new maps. The new deadline was February 7, 2012.[1]

The primary election day was May 22, 2012.[2] Out of the 100 seats up for election, only 36 had a primary.[3]

Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in Kentucky

On January 20, 2012, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear (D) signed the state's legislative redistricting maps. Each chamber drew its own maps, guided by the majority party (Republican in the Senate and Democratic in the House). The Governor criticized Senate Republicans for drawing partisan maps, but did not chasten the House's plan. The votes in both chambers were marked by anger from minority party legislators[7] and on January 26, House Republicans filed suit against the Democrats' chamber map, arguing that the plan unnecessarily divides counties. The approved plan split four more counties than the Republican alternative.[8]

Owing to the court challenge, Judge Phillip Shepherd postponed the filing deadline for both chambers until February 7 in order to consider the constitutionality of new maps.[9] Ultimately, Shepherd declared the newly drawn legislative districts unconstitutional and ordered election officials to use previous district lines in the 2012 election. His ruling declared the maps unconstitutional because some districts varied by more than the ideal 5 percent population size and divided more counties into separate legislative districts than necessary.[10]
