Filing for the 2022 elections opened at noon Monday in all North Carolina counties.  At the Lincoln County Elections Office on Salem Church Road, a flurry of candidates filed on the first day.  Those who want to run will have until noon on Friday December 17th to file.

There will be a primary election on March 8, 2022.  Two Lincoln County Commissioners posts are up for election.  Both of the incumbents--Bud Cesena and Milton Sigmon--filed Monday.   Jamie Lineberger also filed.  Since all three are Republicans, that means there will definitely be a GOP Primary.  

Sheriff Bill Beam also filed Monday.  Two other GOP candidates have announced they'll seek to become Sheriff, but neither filed Monday.

This year, the Lincoln County Board of Education election will for the first time be partisan.  Todd Wulfhorst, who currently holds the District 5 seat on the board, filed for the at-large seat currently held by Tony Jenkins. Krista Heavner filed for the District 5 seat.  One Democrat filed for the School Board election;  Keith Poston also filed for that at-large seat.  So far, no Republican or Democrat has filed for the District 2 seat currently held by Joan Avery.  The new district lines approved in early November put Avery's residence in District 1, so she can't file for re-election the post she now holds.  She can file for the at-large post.  Those three seats are the only ones of the seven on the School Board up for election in 2022.

Clerk of Court Fred Hatley filed for re-election as did Register of Deeds Danny Hester.

Poston, Mayor Ed Hatley, and City Council members Mary Frances White and Marty Eaddy were the only Democrats to file Monday.  Two Republicans also filed for Council seats. Jill Tipton will seek the Ward 3 seat and Kevin Demery will run for the seat representing Ward 1.  So far, no one has filed for Mayor except Hatley.
