The candidates for Harrodsburg City Commission won't be biting their nails come election night, the race is uncontested.
It's the first time in recent memory that there have been no challengers. The same goes for the Perryville City Council, Hustonville City Council, Garrard County Board of Education and several other area races.
The Kentucky League of Cities says half of the city elections in the state are uncontested this year.
The names will still be on the ballot, voters can cast their choice, but the winners are nearly guaranteed a spot. The incumbents were the only ones who filed for commissioner in Harrodsburg. They are Jack Springate, Kevin Perkins, Joseph Hood and Eddie Long.
Hood has a theory about why there are no challengers this year.
"We've done well together," he said of the current commission, which has been the same for several terms. "There are no controversies that I know of."
