July 31 GOP ballot - Glynn County

This is primarily to identify candidates in the GOP primary in Glynn County. Note many candidates represent multiple counties or portions of multiple counties. With very few Democrats qualified, most races will be determined in the July 31 primary or Aug 21 primary runoff.

NEW Sample Ballots:

Sample Glynn County ballots: http://www.glynncounty.org/index.aspx?nid=596
St. Williams non-partisan http://www.glynncounty.org/documents/11/854/1-40-NP-FB_201206181656070007.pdf

All are Republican unless marked Democrat (D) in red. Yes RED. Reagan Republicans are true blue and leftists are RED. Have never liked that MSM made Republicans consistently red starting in 2000  However with so many Southern states voting Republican, there is some historical precedent for showing Southern states as red. Did you ever play with Yankee and Rebel army figures? Yankees are blue. Rebels are red.
