Magistrates, along with the County Judge Executive, make up the Fiscal Court - the governing body of Franklin County. The page provides information about Franklin County's Magisterial District 6. Since Kentucky has a primary election for local officials in 2022, contact information for candidates for the Magisterial District 6 is included.  We urge you to contact candidates, learn about their plans if elected, and share your interests and concerns.  Elections are about more than just voting -- elections provide us the opportunity to learn about candidates and to work for those we support!

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 for a listing of current constables), each responsible for one of the six Magisterial Districts.

The map of Franklin county, below, shows all 44 voting precincts in the full county map to the right of the graphic. 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 6 (click here for a more detailed map of District 6) is made up of seven (7) precincts.  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
