Field set for May 22 primaries
FAYI election
Last week, local and state candidates qualified for the Republican and Democratic primaries set for May 22. Advance voting will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 30 through May 18, with Saturday voting held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 12. Many local elections could be decided in the primary because no Democrats qualified for the positions, though a second qualifying period for independent candidates will be held June 25 through July 10 at the local board of elections and registration office on Academy Avenue. A candidate would need to secure 50 percent plus one vote in the primary to avoid a runoff.
