The primary race between the two candidates will determine who will be the representative of district one for the next four years, as no Democratic challenger filed to contend for the unexpired term.

Chairman of the board and district two representative, Kevin Corbin, will be squaring off against Republican challenger Vic Drummond on the May primary ballot.
