The following officials won re-election the easy way: They didn't draw an opponent.

State Rep. Tom Anderson

State Rep. Will Weatherford

State Attorney Bernie McCabe

Public Defender Bob Dillinger

Property Appraiser Mike Wells

Tax Collector Mike Olson

School Board member Kathryn Starkey (District 4)

County Judge Paul Firmani

Primary decider

The School Board seat in District 2 — featuring nonpartisan candidates Kurt Conover, Peter Hanzel and Joanne Hurley — could be decided in the Aug. 26 primary if one candidate gets a majority of the vote. If not, the top two vote-getters will square off in the November election.

Other primaries

State Senate: Fred Taylor and Richard Skandera will square off in the Democratic primary. The winner faces incumbent Mike Fasano, a Republican, in the Nov. 4 general election.

Sheriff: Incumbent Bob White faces Robert Sullivan on the Republican side; Kim Bogart faces Jeff Deremer on the Democratic side. Non-party candidate Bobby Kinzy will compete with the winners in the fall.

County Commission (District 1): Incumbent Ted Schrader faces John Nicolette in a closed GOP primary. Only Republicans can vote in that race because write-in candidate John Taylor awaits the winner in the general election.

County Commission (District 3): Incumbent Ann Hildebrand faces Matt Matey and Wil Nickerson in the GOP primary; Teresa "Terri" Conroy and Nicholas Planck will square off on the Democratic side. The winners face each other in November.

Clerk Of Courts: Paula O'Neil faces Dan Tipton in the GOP primary. The winner will compete against Democrat Robert Altman in the general election.
