More than 400 candidates have filed for office ahead of deadline, according to Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.

The deadline is January 28, 2014.

State officials said anyone who wants to be on the ballot for the May 20th Primary Election must file their papers by 4 p.m.

Grimes said she recommends filing early because Kentucky law does let candidates correct the paperwork after the deadline.

Candidates for the following public offices on the ballot next year must file with the Secretary of State’s office:

·        U.S. Senator

·        U.S. Representative

·        State Senator (even-numbered districts)

·        State Representative

·        Justice of the Supreme Court (districts 1, 2, 4 and 6)

·        Judge of the Court of Appeals

·        Circuit Judge

·        District Judge
