(BEDFORD) - Voters can begin casting ballots for the May 6th Primary Election on Tuesday April 8 in the voter Registration Office in the lower level of the Lawrence County courthouse.

Lawrence County Clerk Myron Rainey says the election could stir a strong voter turnout because of the contested Sheriff's race.

Six people have entered the race: Republicans Mike Branham, Neil Hayes and Sam Shaw, and Democrats Bill Allen, Darin S. Kinser and Roland Stockton. Current Sheriff Sam Craig has served two consecutive terms and, by state law, cannot run again.

Republicans also have contested races for the Lawrence County Council in Districts 1 and 2, and for the Lawrence County Commissioner seat in District 1.

Several people also have filed for the 9th Congressional District seat currently held by Republican Todd Young. On the Republican ballot are Mark Jones and Kathy Lowe Heil, and on the Democratic ballot are Bill Bailey, James McClure Jr., J.S. Miller and William Joseph Thomas.

April 7 is the last day to register to vote for the primary election. Registration applications may be submitted to the voter registration office until 4:30 p.m. that day.
