Some changes could be on the way the next time Kentucky voters elect a governor. A bill passes the Kentucky Senate to move the election for governor and several other statewide offices to every four years beginning in 2016. That would have the races for Kentucky governor fall the same years as the presidential elections. Currently Kentuckians elect a governor in the year before a presidential election. The bill still needs to pass the House and be put to a voter referendum before it could become law.
