With Kentucky's primary races in the books, the stage is set for November's general election to determine the future of Kentucky's six seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Each of the Bluegrass State's incumbents — Louisville Democrat Morgan McGarvey, along with Republicans Andy Barr, James Comer, Brett Guthrie, Thomas Massie and Hal Rogers — will be on the ballot this fall, as three scored dominant primary wins while the other three did not face challengers.

McGarvey rolled in Louisville, with more than 80% of the vote, ensuring he'll have a chance for another term in office if he wins again in November. In a district that generally votes blue, he'll be a heavy favorite against his GOP challenger.

Let's break down how the general election ballot will look in all six Kentucky districts.

District 1 — West Kentucky and portions of Central Kentucky

Rep. Comer, the Republican incumbent first elected in 2016, did not face a primary challenger. In the general election, he'll face Democratic candidate Erin Marshall, a self-described "normal, hardworking single mom in Frankfort" who also did not face a primary challenger.

Rep. James Comer represents portions of West Kentucky and Central Kentucky un U.S. Congress.
