For the 73rd Congress (March 4, 1933 – January 3, 1935), Kentucky did not use a district election format, but instead, elected all representatives in a statewide, at-large manner. The district format was returned during the 74th Congress and has been used in all congressional sessions thereafter. On September 3, 1932 United States District Judge Andrew M. J. Cochran of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky ruled in favor of the plaintiff in Hume v. Mahan, 1 F. Supp. 142 - Dist. Court, ED Kentucky 1932, striking down the Kentucky's General Assembly "Kentucky Redistricting Act of 1932" and establishing at-large congressional elections for the 1932 General Election.
