It’s almost here! August 30 is our Primary Election, open to all registered voters in St. Johns County.

Many local offices have the potential to be decided in this Primary, and some will be elected Aug. 30. The Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, Sheriff, three of our County Commission seats and four Circuit Court Judge seats are all on the Primary ballot. Voters living in District 2 will also have the School Board District 2 race on their ballot. Additionally, there will be the candidates that are running for the US Senate and Congressional Seats (District 4 if you live in the north part of the county) and a constitutional amendment.

Unsure of your districts or who will be on your ballot? Visit www.votesjc.com and use the voter lookup to check your voter record. Once you put in your information and bring up your record, you can choose the list of office holders. All your districts and representatives will be listed. You will also be able to view your sample ballot. They will be available on the website around Aug. 1. All voters will receive a sample ballot prior to the election, which will be based on your party and precinct.

Florida is a closed primary state, so in the Primary Election on Aug. 30, the law requires you to vote only the party in which you are registered. You may also vote in any of the non-partisan contests available. August 1 is the last day to register to vote or make party changes for the Primary Election. For more information, visit www.votesjc.com or call the Elections Office at (904) 823-2238.

Upcoming Candidate Forums sponsored by the League of Women Voters will be held at the County Auditorium, broadcast live on GTV Channel 3 and recorded so you may view them at your convenience. All forums will be held at 7 p.m. Here is a schedule of the forums:

Aug. 3: Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, Sheriff and information on Constitutional Amendment #4

Aug. 10: Circuit Judge Candidates, four seats on the Primary ballot

Aug. 17: County Commission Candidates, District 1, 3 and 5
