The road to election day starts Friday when qualifying petitions become available for those who will be seeking office this coming year.“We have most local offices up for election so we’re expecting quite a field,” said election administrator Donna Smith. She noted every eight years the eight-year judicial offices (district attorney, general sessions judge, circuit judge and public defender) coincide with the four-year county offices to make what some call a super election.The starting line begins Friday when candidates may pick up qualifying petitions. Qualifying will continue until Feb. 20.“This will not include offices like constable and School Board because they do not have party primaries,” Smith said.
