Grayson County will head to the polls on Tuesday to cast votes in the mid-term General Election. 

Many races have already been decided, and several more will be settled on Tuesday. 

The city of Leitchfield will elect its first new mayor in more than two decades as residents cast votes for either Rick Embry or Kevin Pharis.

Embry's mayoral candidacy leaves his current seat on the Leitchfield City Council vacant. City Councilmember Margaret Fey also ran for mayor but was unsuccessful in the May primary election, so her seat will be contested Tuesday, as well. 

Leitchfield City Council candidates are incumbents Raymond "Tooty" Cottrell, Margie Decker, Harold Miller and Kelly Stevenson, and challengers Wm. Billy Dallas, M. Kayleane House-Santos, James Clayton Miller, and Kiley Milliner.

In Clarkson, incumbent Mayor Bonnie Henderson will face challengers Darrick Austin and Dennie Wilkerson on Tuesday. 

Additionally, current Clarkson City Commissioners Ed Schott and Debra Myers' decision not to seek re-election leaves two of the four commissioner seats vacant. Incumbents Joyce Bell and Bob Vincent are seeking re-election and face challengers LaLonnie Fraze, Chris Gaither, Darrell Newton, Robbie Richardson, Tara Sallee and Marsha Whitehead. 

In Caneyville, incumbent Mayor James Paul Embry will face challenger Tim Dotson, and incumbent City Commissioners Deborah Embry, Mike Geary, Scott Majors, and Janice Minton will be challenged for one of their seats by Melissa Dotson. 

Grayson County Government will also see several changes after votes are tallied.

Republican Jeremy Logsdon, running unopposed in the General Election, will serve as the new county attorney starting in January, and either Democrat Becky Mercer or Republican Charlotte Willis will serve as the new county clerk. 

Grayson County will also see an entirely new Fiscal Court following the election. Robbie Higdon (R) defeated incumbent Harold Johnson (R) to run unopposed for the position of 1st District Magistrate, and Tommy Higdon (R) will serve as 3rd District Magistrate following his primary election victory for the soon-to-be vacant seat. Current 3rd District Magistrate Brenda Huffman, who was appointed by Gov. Matt Bevin to serve out the remainder of the late Bill Skaggs' term, opted to not seek another term. 

Incumbent 2nd District Magistrate Presto Gary was defeated by challenger Darin Whitely in the Republican primary held in May, and Whitely will now go on to challenge independent James Thomason for the seat. 

Incumbent 4th District Magistrate Jason Dennis unsuccessfully challenged incumbent Grayson County Judge-Executive Kevin Henderson (who now runs unopposed) in May, so 4th District residents on Tuesday will select either Democrat Steve Alvey and Republican Damon Hornback to serve as their next magistrate. 

Incumbent 5th District Magistrate Brad Brown and incumbent 6th District Magistrate Curtis Wells both opted not to run for re-election this year. Republican Brian Ashley and Democrat Leslie Gibson will challenge one another for the position of 5th District Magistrate, and Democrat Barry Cannon and Republican Neal Saltsman will challenge for the 6th District Magistrate seat. 

The 4th and 5th Districts will also see new constables in Republicans Bryan Hammons (4th District) and Mark Stanton (5th District).

Lastly, residents in the Falls of Rough precinct will have the opportunity to cast votes in a local option election that will determine whether Falls of Rough will permit the sales of alcoholic beverages at golf courses, wineries, qualified historic sites and restaurants. 

The voter registration deadline was Oct. 9. Registered voters can find out their voting location by visiting the Kentucky Voter Information Portal,, or calling the Grayson County Clerk's Office.
