LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – If you are a Kentucky resident and have plans to change your political party affiliation to cast a vote in the 2014 primary, time is running out. 

The last day to change political party affiliations to cast a partisan ballot in the May 2014 primary election is December 31, 2013. 

Kentucky law requires voters to make political party changes by December 31 of the previous year. Nore Ghibaudy, a spokesman for Jefferson County Court Clerk Bobbie Holsclaw, said that voters can change party affiliations after December 31, but that person will only be able to vote in nonpartisan races. 

To make a party affiliation change, visit the county clerk's office in your county of residence. You can also mail in a voter registration card, but it must be postmarked by December 31, 2013.
