In the state races for District, Circuit and Family Court Judges for the 27th Judicial Circuit, the only competition is for Family Court Judge for Laurel and Knox counties, which are also non-Partisan. Those offices are:

Circuit Judge: Division 1 - Greg Lay; Division 2 - Tom Jensen

District Judge: Division 1 - John Paul Chappell; Division 2 - Wendell “Skip” Hammons

Family Court Judge: Durenda Lundy Lawson (incumbent), Steve Jones, and Marilyn Benge McGhee

For those offices in which more than one candidate is seeking election, the May primary election will determine the winner of the particular party by the highest number of voters. Under Kentucky law, the May primary allows registered voters to choose the candidate of their particular party only, with the November general election pitting the Republican candidate against the Democratic candidate. No Independent candidates filed for the 2014 elections in Laurel County.

The city council candidates will not be listed on the May primary ballot locally, but registered voters in the city will make their choices for that race in November, with the six top vote getters succeeding to the council seats.
