Lowndes County - Qualification opened Monday in Lowndes County and election officials are expecting a big turnout.

From veteran state officials to local leaders, the ballot this year will be long. The Lowndes County Sheriff and Commission Chairman seats are up for grabs.

State senator Tim Golden and Congressman Jack Kingston are hoping to be re-elected, too.

Since it's a presidential election year, officials say each race is generating a lot of interest.

"There will be a great turn out and we think the interest in the race will help not only the presidential race but all our candidates on the ticket as well," says Dennis Marks, Chair of the Lowndes County Democratic Party.

So far, nine Democrat and three Republican candidates have qualified. They expect 20 more by the end of the week.
