The drawing is scheduled at the Republican Headquarters at 201A Silver Alley at 6:30 p.m., and the public is invited, Ambrose said. In a press release issued Tuesday, he said all candidates would "be notified individually to make sure everyone is made aware of this event."
Candidates for Republican precinct chairmanships will not participate in Monday's drawing since the election for those posts is not scheduled until July 31. They will be listed on that ballot in the order their applications were received, Ambrose told The Mirror Tuesday.
The drawing date for the May 29 election was set by federal court order, his news release said.
Since the filing period for offices re-opened last Friday, the only additional candidate to file for Upshur County office in the GOP primary is Wayne Henson, who re-filed for Pct. 4 constable that day, said Ambrose.
Henson's earlier application for the post had been declared ineligible because he mistakenly listed his mailing address instead of his residential address on the form, the chairman said. Other candidates in that race so far include incumbent Phillip Hill and Dewayne LaGrone.
The re-filing period ends at 6 p.m. Friday and Ambrose said he will be available at the headquarters from 2-6 p.m. that day for filing. Anyhone interested in filing or amending their application can contact him at 843-8683.
"I don't anticipate that there'll be any other filings," said Ambrose, who is opposed so far by Cynthia Ridgeway and Chuck Mears in his own bid for re-election.
County Democratic Chairman Joe Newsom was unavailable for comment Tuesday morning on whether any candidates have filed to run for county offices in his party's May 29 primary. At last report, Dan Miles Jr., who filed for county Democratic chairman, was the only local candidate who had filed to run on the Democratic ballot.
