A Few Details

The August 7th election will include the county general election and state and federal primary. When you go vote, you will be asked if you want to vote in the democrat or republican primary. The party affiliation will only apply to the state and federal election. All county candidates will be on both ballots.

The ballot will include all the county offices that were on the May primary plus four school board seats, state senate and house candidates and federal congress and senate seats. There will also be several judge seats, public defender, attorney general and some others.

As to the county general part of the election, all the May primary candidates will be on the ballot but all will be unopposed since there were no democrat challengers. The only contested county race will be 2nd district school board seat "A" where Joshua Marler qualified to challenge incumbent William Jenkins.

I don't think any of the state candidates have any primary challenges but will meet their democrat challengers in the November election. I guess the most notable race on the August ballot will be republican Jason Zachary's challenge of long time republican congressman Jimmy Duncan.

There's a chance turnout could be low since there are so few contested races.
