The Kentucky House of Representatives is the lower house of the Kentucky General Assembly. Composed of 100 Representatives, members are elected from single-member districts throughout the Commonwealth. Not more than two counties can be joined to form a House district, except when necessary to preserve the principle of equal representation.
A member of Kentucky's House of Representatives must be at least 24 years old, a citizen of Kentucky, and must have lived in the state for at least two years and in the district for one year prior to election. Representatives are elected for two-year terms, with no term limits. The entire House is elected every two years.
House District 57 includes Franklin County, except for portions adjacent to Woodford County, as noted on the map. These are part of House District 56. The map on the right identifies House District 57 indicated in light yellow on the map.
Derrick Graham, the Democratic incumbent, defeated Republican Gary Stratton in the Nov. 3, 2020 election. Graham will continue to represent House District 57 for the 2021 & 2022 legislative sessions.
