Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell is being challenged by Clovis Watson Jr. in the August Democratic primary. There is no Republican in the race but a write-in candidate in November keeps the primary closed to only party voters.
Alachua County Democrats will also pick from five candidates looking to fill the open seat of Property Appraiser: Matt Geiger, Susan McQuillanm, Wendy Sapp, Ayesha Solomon and Kelly Suggs. A write-in candidate will keep this primary race also closed.
Two City Council races will also be on the Democratic ballot this month.
- District 1: Mary Alford and Mike Byerly compete in the Democratic primary, with the winner advancing to face Republican Raemi Eagle-Glenn and a write-in candidate in November.
Two nonpartisan School Board seats are also on the August primary ballot for all voters.
- District 4: Sande Calkins faces Leanetta McNealy
