Kentucky's 6th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Kentucky. Based in Central Kentucky, the district contains the cities of Lexington (including its suburbs), Richmond, and Frankfort, the state capital.

The district is currently represented by Republican Andy Barr.

Characteristics

As of September 2013, there were 507,252 registered voters: 293,915 (57.94%) Democrats, 171,722 (33.85%) Republicans, and 41,615 (8.20%) "Others". All of the "Others" included 29,934 (5.90%) unclassified Others, 10,760 (2.12%) Independents, 684 (0.13%) Libertarians, 166 (0.03%) Greens, 44 (0.0087%) Constitutionalists, 16 (0.0032%) Reforms, and 11 (0.0022%) Socialist Workers.[4][5]

Until January 1, 2006, Kentucky did not track party affiliation for registered voters who were neither Democratic nor Republican.[6] The Kentucky voter registration card does not explicitly list anything other than Democratic Party, Republican Party, or Other, with the "Other" option having a blank line and no instructions on how to register as something else.[7]
