The two-party system may dominate politics, but Kentuckians will still have a host of options when it comes to voting for a presidential candidate this fall.

In addition to the two major party candidates, two other political parties have qualified their candidates in Kentucky.
The Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein will join well-known candidates Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama on the ballot.

Also listed will be at least three other write-in slates and Independent candidate Randall Terry of West Virginia.

Deadlines for party candidates to qualify for Kentucky’s ballot have passed, but write-in candidates have until next month to qualify.
