The campaign signs were staked in the yards months ago. There’s been constant talk about who will run the sheriff’s department and who will sit at the county commission table.
But the time for campaigning is over.
It’s the voters’ turn to speak.
The 2012 primary elections are set for Tuesday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., at Madison County’s 11 voting precincts.
And there’s plenty at stake, particularly on the Republican ballots. GOP voters will choose between incumbent sheriff Kip Thomas and challengers Brenan Baird and Clayton Lowe. They will pick between incumbent district attorney Bob Lavender and challenger Parks White. District 1 voters will pick either incumbent commissioner Stanley Thomas or his challenger Lee Parker. District 2 voters will tap incumbent commissioner Dewitt “Pete” Bond or challenger Larry Stewart to face Democrat Conolus Scott Jr. in the general election.
