The weeklong Forsyth qualifying period for candidates wishing to run in the May 20 primary and Nov. 4 general elections came to a close on Friday.

But with no Democrats qualifying, that means all the local races will be settled before the general election.

In the race for District 27 seat in the Georgia Senate, incumbent Jack Murphy will face a trio of challengers in Lauren McDonald, Jack Schiff and Michael Williams.

The race for the State House District 22 seat will be a rematch of last month’s special election runoff won by Sam Moore over Meagan Biello. They will be joined on the ballot by fellow Cherokee County resident Wes Cantrell. Moore won the special election to fill the unexpired term of Calvin Hill, who passed away from leukemia last October.

The District 26 race will feature incumbent Geoff Duncan and former state representative Tom Knox.

District 24 State Rep. Mark Hamilton will face Sheri Gilligan.

State Sen. Steve Gooch (District 51) and State Reps. Mike Dudgeon (District 25) and Kevin Tanner (District 9) are each running unopposed.

District 3 County Commissioner Todd Levent will face a challenger in David Hole, while District 1 Commissioner Pete Amos is running unopposed.

On the Forsyth Board of Education, incumbent Ann Crow is facing challengers Amanda Nixon and Mark Weiss for her District 1 seat, while District 2 board member Kristin Morrissey is running unopposed.

For others who qualified for local elections, see the attached list.
