Monday was the first day to qualify for the upcoming November elections.

No county offices are up for grabs, but every seat in Pembroke will be on the ballot and Richmond Hill will have two openings for council posts.

"Nothing will come open until the November 2008 elections; then we’ll have two or three positions open at that time," County Administrator Phil Jones said for the county.

Richmond Hill City Clerk Ursula Lee said both previous incumbents for the councilmen positions, Billy Albritton and Jimmy Hires, signed up again on Monday and qualified.

Pembroke City Clerk Betty Hill said previous incumbents Elijah Lewis, Jr., Judy Cook, Johnny Miller, Sr., Ernest Hamilton and Joey Burnsed are all running for their positions again; challenger Angela Reed is running at large. Candidates can qualify for office until Friday, Aug. 31.

In addition, the county will vote on the Board of Education SPLOST resolution, Chief Registrar Warren Miller said.

Oct. 9 is the last registration day for voting in the SPLOST special election, which will be Tuesday, Nov. 6.
