      Qualifying candidates shed light on upcoming elections


      At noon Friday, local counties found out how their future elections would play out after election qualifying ended.

      In Dougherty County, several seats will be uncontested, including multiple Dougherty County School Board seats held by Velvet Edwards-Riggins and James Bush. Lee County also faces a similar situation for it's school board seats as none of the three seats have opposition. Worth County had three seats open like Lee County, but opposition has appeared in the district one and three seats.

      The Worth County Sheriff's race had five people qualify, making it one of the candidate-laden races for the July election. Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachals faces opposition from David Cheshire while Dougherty County Sheriff Kevin Sproul had no opposition.

      Despite not having any formal ballot competition, candidates could see competition from a qualified write-in candidate.
