New Year’s resolution: Be a well-prepared St Johns County voter

As Historic City News subscribers ring in 2022, St Johns County Supervisor of Elections Vicky Oakes says that she is prepared for the elections in the coming year and she thinks our readers should be, too.  It is never too soon to begin your research on those people who will offer themselves as candidates for public office.

The best place to start is to acquaint yourself with the seats that will appear on the 2022 Primary and General Election ballots.  Then learn about the voting track record for the incumbents who currently hold each of those seats and if they plan to run for re-election.  It will be important for you to know if an incumbent seat holder faces opposition for their seat.

According to Oakes’ website, the following local offices are scheduled for election in 2022:

  • St Johns County Judge – Group 2
