2018 Complete Voters Guide Available Now

It is our technical goal to have the page fully loaded within 3 seconds. During configuration changes on the servers, to optimize the site, this update was lost.

Judge Sean Delahanty‘s campaign site has collected tools and information from several sites and placed them in one place for your convenience.  We link or embed pages from the Jefferson County Clerk, the Kentucky Secretary of State, maps, data and news articles.

Whether you need to register to vote or you want to know the age ranges represented in a specific precinct we have that information here.  Its why we are calling it the 2018 Complete Voter Guide.

Register To Vote Online

The site directly links visitors to the state’s online registration form after providing eligibility requirements.  Alternatively we include the telephone number you can call to ask about registering to vote in person.

polling place

Verify Registration And Polling Location

We’ve embedded a database lookup that provides voters with their legislative districts as well as where they are assigned to vote.

Review All Offices And Candidates

We’ve included the list of offices from suburban city council to US representative.  We plan to expand our information on each of the Metro Council candidate’s and link to their websites as well as automatically display their announcements if available. This collection includes judicial races for Circuit Court, Family Court and District Court.

Sample Ballot

The County Clerk’s office will provide specific sample ballots in October, but for the time being we have a generalized sample ballot with city-wide and Metro Council races included on it.  This ballot doesn’t make judgements for you but lets you research the candidates on their own.



We encourage organizations that make endorsements to post their endorsements on their web sites or provide the campaign a complete list.  Endorsements will then be posted here regardless of if Judge Sean Delahanty was endorsed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sean Delahanty knows elections can be confusing and laws or polling locations may change. We offer answers to an expansive FAQ selection and if your question is not already noted you can submit it to the campaign and we’ll try to answer it for you and possibly post it to the FAQs.

Election Polling

We will have poll questions on the guide pages where visitors can see the results of other visitors.  As polling is released by other groups to the public we’ll post that polling in the guide.

2018 Election Results

On election night there are several media and government outlets that will provide electionresults.  We’ll pull multiple sources together allowing voters to compare the numbers across outlets.

Voter Statistics And Demographics

If you’d like to know more about a precinct or district we’ve embedded a statistics tool into our site. This includes voter age and gender to the precinct level.

Voter Precinct And District Maps

With over 600 voting precincts in Jefferson County we thought voters may want to see a map.  In addition to precincts we have maps of Metro Council Districts and State Legislative Districts as well as neighborhoods.

The guide will not be “complete” until after the election, so check back often to see what new information has been added.

Courier-Journal – 2018 Dainty Contest

Supriya Sridhar, Louisville Courier JournalPublished 7:34 p.m. ET July 30, 2018Updated 10:03 a.m. ET Aug. 1, 2018

Correction: This story has been updated to reflect the correct spelling of Hauck’s Handy Store and the name of Lynn Hauck Hite. 

Salt and pepper hair and brightly colored lawn chairs lined the streets surrounding Hauck’s Handy Store on Monday evening, as those 45 years and older signed up to compete in the annual World Championship Dainty Contest.

Using a 3-foot broom handle, competitors try to pop up and hit the small wooden peg. They get three shots to try to hit it as far down George Hauck Way as they can.

The street game was created by German immigrants in the 1800s. It was brought to Schnitzelburg in 1971 by George Hauck, who created the game to bring the community closer together. And proceeds go to the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Old swing tunes spread around the streets. Standing under the Hauck’s Handy Store sign, Lynn Hauck Hite, George Hauck’s daughter, runs around gathering beer tickets selling icy drinks from the storefront.

“It always meant a lot to dad and all of us,” she said.

Hauck, 98, was unable to make the event this year. However, his daughter, Lynn, and other Dainty veterans are continuing the tradition.

Gary Allen wears a neon yellow T-shirt and clutches a microphone in his hand. The 66-year-old has been organizing the event for 13 years.

When he began, there were nearly 300 people in attendance. Today the event has grown to close to 500.

One of those attendees is Mike McDermott, 39. He sits in a lawn chair along the side of the road with his mother, Pat.

Watching participants prepare, he smiles.

“It’s not as easy as it looks,” McDermott said.

McDermott has been coming to the event for nearly 30 years now. It’s a tradition for him. He’s seen people who are freshly 45 and 80-year-olds participate in some friendly competition.

Sister Michele and Mary Schmidt laugh as excitement amongst watchers grows. Sister Michele lives in the area and has been coming to the event for five years.

“There’s nothing like this,” she said, lips spreading into a grin.

As drops of rain begin to splatter amongst the crowd, attendees pull out umbrellas and pull up hoods, unfazed by the weather.

Old friends, local dignitaries and young onlookers hug and laugh as one by one players strike out. They cheer as a sudden hit sends a peg flying through the air.

Gary Allen speaks into the mic, calling contestants up, one more excited than the next.

“Every year someone says I can’t wait to be 45,” he said.
