Election season is in full swing for Houston County. This July 31, voters will decide the races for Houston County Board of Education seats for Districts 1, 3, 5 and At-Large, as well as Judge of the Magistrate Court and a special election for Solicitor General.
By the end of qualifying Friday, there are only two contested races.
The most heated is a three-way grapple for the Post 7 At-Large seat on the Board of Education between David "Dave" McMahan, Griff Clements and Andy Rodriguez.
The other is the special election for Solicitor General between Amy E. Smith and Carl A. Veline, Jr. Last year, Smith was appointed to finish the unexpired term for Rob Tawse who retired.
