Qualifying for this year's elections has ended, and four Levy County candidates find themselves elected without opposition.

Tax Collector Linda Fugate, Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbell, and School Board members Beth Davis and Paige Brookins each failed to draw an opponent.

In any race where there is more than one candidate of either party, the candidates will appear on the ballot on Aug. 26.

That includes most of the other races. The exception is the battle for superintendent of schools between Democrat Jeff Edison and Republican Robert Hastings. This race will go through to the Nov. 4 election without being on the primary ballot.

In the races for clerk of court and sheriff, there are two members of the same party who are the only qualifiers. That means that in these two races it will be an open primary, with voters of all parties allowed to cast ballots.

For all other races, only Democrats may vote in the primary, since the primary winner will face Republican opposition in the fall.

That includes the races for property appraiser and all three county commission races.
