Election season begins; filing opens this week

In the coming weeks, voters will find out who will be on their ballots this year, vying for elected offices, including the judge of a new court and county council members, who decide how tax dollars are spent.

Filing for Democratic and Republican candidates starts Wednesday and runs through Feb. 7, deputy clerk Reagan Higdon said.

Voters had a year off from election season in 2013, but this year will have the chance to vote in federal, state and local races. One federal office, eight state offices, 14 county offices, 18 township offices and four municipal offices are up for election.
