The ballot is set for Aug. 6 with the deadline to qualify passing on Thursday at noon. 

Two of the three Warren County School Board seats are being challenged. School Board member Tanya Bess will face competition from Kenneth L. Rogers, a former county executive, while incumbent Teddy Jones will run against Tommy Culwell. Bill Zechman is running unopposed.

Candidates running for Warren County Property Assessor include incumbent Beth Woodlee Martin (D) and Jeff T. McGee (R).

In August there will also be State Primary Elections for the offices of State Representatives in the 43rd and 47th Districts, as well as 16th District State Senate, 4th District U.S. Representative and one U.S. Senate seat.

In the Republican Primary for U.S. House 43rd District, Rep. Paul Sherrell is being challenged by Jerry Lowery and Bobby Robinson. Once that candidate is chosen, he will face Independent Luke Cameron in November. No Democratic candidates qualified.

Republicans will also have their pick for House of Representatives in the 47th District. Incumbent Rush Bricken is being challenged by Ronnie E. Holden to represent the Republican Party. That election will be decided in the primary, as no Democratic or Independent candidates applied.

In the Republican Primary for state Senate, incumbent Janice Bowling is running unopposed. However, Sheila Younglove is seeking Democratic Primary support and is expected to face Bowling in November. 

Warren County Constables Mark G. Griffith and Ed Farmelo are running unopposed. Also open was a third seat, but no one qualified to be 4th District Constable.
