Local offices up on 2016 ballots in Polk County
Candidates in local elections are starting to campaign as signs go up around the local area and people advertise for their top picks.
A slew of local positions are up for grabs - from the county commission to the local courts - are getting ready to vie in primaries this spring in hope of getting residents to choose them for office.
Those primaries - set for May - will give voters a chance to decide who they believe have the right ideas for Polk County in the coming years.
Those include positions on the County Commission, the sheriff’s race, Probate Court, Tax Assessor and more.
Don’t forget, local residents still have time to become candidates, and can find out more by calling the Board of Elections.
