Your Primary Scorecard for Tuesday night

“Can’t tell the players without a scorecard” was the line at the ballparks. As we come down to the final inning of this year’s primaries, Forward Kentucky is here with our own Primary Scorecard!

It’s primary season! We used to say “it’s primary day,” but with early voting already underway, this year’s primary election is more than just one day.

Some of the primary elections are probably foregone conclusions, based on name recognition and money. Others, though, are toss-ups and even possible upsets, and could make big differences in the races this fall.

To help you keep track of who’s winning and losing, and which ones are expected and which ones are shockers, we’ve put together this Primary Scorecard. Print it out (there’s a PDF version at the bottom) and mark it up as the results come in on Tuesday night. Enjoy!


  • The scorecard works much better in light mode than dark.
  • If the race is a one-party race, so that the primary determines the overall winner, it’s marked as primary only.
  • If the winner of the primary still has to face an opponent from the other party in the fall, it’s marked as on to general.
  • For those marked “on to general,” the opponent in the fall is listed.
  • If the incumbent is running in the primary, their name is in bold.
  • If the incumbent does not have a primary, they are listed with “inc” by their name in the race header.
  • And, if the incumbent is not running at all, the race is marked as open seat.
  • Finally, if you want some really in-depth reporting on the Liberty-vs-establishment subplot, check this article from Joe Sonka. As always, Joe does solid work.
