Leon County Supervisor of Elections Mark Earley has won his re-election. At the close of candidate qualifying on Friday no one had chosen to run for the position. He says not having to campaign helps given the timing.

“It is a relief I can’t help but admit that - not to campaign," Earley said. "Not only during the coronavirus pandemic but also at a time where my job’s pretty demanding at all times but certainly around an election period and very much so given the pandemic.”

Earley wasn’t the only person re-elected automatically. County Property Appraiser Akin Akinyemi, Tax Collector Doris Maloy, Clerk of Court Gwen Marshall, County Commissioner Jimbo Jackson, and School Board member Rosanne Wood are also coming back for another term.
