A slate of 11 local candidates will appear on the ballot this November.
All beat the June 8 deadline to submit the required paperwork, according to records in the Henry County Registrar’s office.
Four of the candidates are incumbents seeking reelection — Jim Adams, of the Blackberry District, and Joe Bryant, of the Collinsville District, are seeking re-election to their respective posts on Henry County Board of Supervisors.
Thomas Auker, of the Blackberry District, and Benjamin Gravely, of the Iriswood District, are seeking re-election to the Henry County School Board.
Adams, Auker and Gravely are unopposed in their reelection bids.
The remaining candidates are newcomers to the political scene.
Iriswood District voters will select from a slate of four supervisor candidates — Eric Bowling, Garrett Dillard, Eric Phillips and Billy “Dean” White.
Voters in Collinsville will decide in head-to-head competitions for both boards.
Bryant is being challenged by Andrew Palmer for the supervisor seat, and Ray Reynolds and Elizabeth Durden are both hopefuls for single school board seat.
