The races are on.

Candidate qualifying for the 2014 election cycle closed last Friday with the two county commission seats drawing multiple candidates.

Both sitting county commissioners will face opposition.

For Commissioner Tan Smiley and challenger Sandy Quinn, Jr. there is a bit of urgency in the District 4 race.

With both candidates Democrats, the Aug. 26 primary is universal, meaning all voters in the district may cast a ballot and the race will be decided in the primary, not advancing to the November general election.

Commissioner Ward McDaniel, the lone Democrat in the District 2 race, has no primary challenger for his run at a second term and advances to the November ballot.

He is automatically joined there by former commissioner Billy Traylor, who is running to regain the seat with no party affiliation.
