Candidates for Franklin County Magisterial District 1 - Magistrates & Constable


The page lists and provides contact information for candidates in the 2022 election for the Magistrate District 1 of Franklin County, KY. Magisterial districts are represented by "Justices of the Peace" or more commonly known as "Magistrates." The position is a partisan office, meaning that candidates must declare the political party for which they seek to be elected to represent.  A constable is also elected from each district. They are charged with & serve various court documents such as summons, civil actions & warrants.  There are six district constables (click to see the current officials) each responsible for a different area of Franklin County.


The map of Franklin county, below, shows all 44 voting precincts. These precincts are grouped to form six (6) magisterial districts, which are required by law to include a population similar in number, in each district. District 1 (click here for a more detailed map of District 1) is made up of 8 precincts which stretch from the southeastern part of the county into the city and includes  the state Capitol building.


District 1 is the shaded areas of the map below and to the right.  Voters in each district of the six (6) magisterial districts elect one candidate to represent the district on the Franklin County Fiscal Court, the governing body for the county, along with the County Judge Executive. On the eastern portion, District 1 is bordered in its northern boundary by the Kentucky River, as well as part of the eastern boundary of the district.
