Julian Morton Carroll (born April 16, 1931) is an American politician from the state of Kentucky. A Democrat, he was a member of the Kentucky Senate from 2005 until 2020.

From 1974 to 1979, he served as the 54th Governor of Kentucky, succeeding Wendell H. Ford, who resigned to accept a seat in the U.S. Senate.[1] He was the first Kentucky governor from the state's far-western Jackson Purchase region, and his running mate Thelma Stovall was the first woman to be elected Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky.
