Four Halifax town residents have picked up candidate forms and qualified for the Nov. 6 General Election, according to Halifax County Registrar Judy Meeler.
Holt Evans, Ronnie Duffey, Bill Confroy and Mike Sexton each have filed as candidates for the two at-large seats up for grabs in the fall election, the registrar said.
No one picked up a packet to run in the special election for the Ward B seat currently held by Terrie Lantor.
Lantor was appointed to fill the position left vacant when former Councilman Tommy Reagan resigned.
Candidate forms to qualify for the Nov. 6 General Election were due Tuesday at 7 p.m., Meeler said.
Earlier this year, the Virginia General Assembly changed the charter allowing the Town of Halifax to hold municipal elections in November instead of May as a cost-savings measure.
The town also sent a petition to the circuit court earlier this year requesting a special election for the position currently held by Lantor to be held on Nov. 6.
