Residents wanting to run for office can start collecting signatures Tuesday for the March primary.
Positions up for nomination include DeKalb County Sheriff, Clerk, Treasurer and Regional Superintendent of Schools.
Doug Johnson is DeKalb County's Clerk and Recorder. He said this election may not draw as much attention as others, but said these offices have the largest impact in everyday life.
“These are the people that are making the laws and the rules, and running our state and county," he said.
