Fall ballot offers three competitive local races / June 10, 2021

The ballot for local office in Halifax County in November is set, with two competitive races for School Board and one for Board of Supervisors.

The filing deadline to qualify for the Nov. 2 general election was Tuesday at 7 p.m. with previously reported candidates all submitting their packets to get on the ballot.

The competitive School Board races are in ED-3 and ED-6. In ED-3, incumbent trustee Sandra Garner-Coleman is being challenged by Thomas J. Lee and Melissa E. Hicks. In ED-6, School Board vice chairman Todd Moser will face off against Lacey Shotwell for the seat.

In ED-2, Roy Keith Lloyd will run unopposed for re-election.

The only districts with November elections for School Board and Board of Supervisors seats are ED-2, ED-3 and ED-6.

In ED-2, county supervisor Jeff Francisco is not running for re-election, and board tiebreaker Larry Roller will be the only candidate on the fall ballot to replace him. Roller’s election to the board will trigger a special election to name a new tiebreaker.

In ED-6, incumbent supervisor Stanley Brandon will run for re-election without opposition on the ballot. The lone contested race for Board of Supervisors will be in ED-3, where board chairman Hubert Pannell will face a challenge by Amy Gautier.

In the 60th House district, Del. James Edmunds is the only candidate to qualify for the November ballot.
