For county commission Posts 1 and 3 — currently held by incumbents Pete Amos and Todd Levent, respectively — the fee will be $1,047.02.

The fee is $3,233.29 for state court solicitor and $4,311.05 for state court judge. Solicitor Bill Finch and Judge Leslie Abernathy-Maddox are the incumbents in those positions.

Forsyth County Board of Education Districts 1 — held by Ann Crow — and District 2 — Kristin Morrissey — will also be on the ballot this year. Qualifying for those seats is $252.

Dates for qualifying were not given at the meeting.
