Most of the countywide judicial office holders will return for another term.

Several countywide elected offices will be unchanged in 2021, as incumbents were unopposed in the primary as also will be without challengers in the general election.

Those include district attorney Darius Pattillo and tax commissioner Michael Harris, both of whom are running as Democrats. The same is true for a few nonpartisan candidates such as State Court judge Pandora Palmer, solicitor general Pamela Bettis, and Probate Court judge Kelley Powell. Incumbent coroner Donald Cleveland won his primary race by a 3-to-1 margin and faces no other opposition.

Holly Veal won the race to keep her Superior Court judgeship, while three-term Superior Court clerk Barbara Harrison was unopposed in the Republican primary and will face Democrat challenger Sabriya Hill in the fall.
