One Florida Panhandle town is about to undergo some political changes.

A lot of positions will be up for grabs in Calhoun County, including sheriff and circuit court clerk.

Both the current sheriff and clerk of court have served the county for 12 years and say it's time to retire.

So far, eight people have put their names in the hat for sheriff and two for clerk of court.

Both the sheriff and clerk share similar expectations for who should fill their shoes.

"First and foremost would be honesty," said Sheriff David Tatum. "Second would be unselfishness and third would be a good work ethic."

"We're small enough that each of these offices elected impacts the community tremendously," said clerk of court Ruth Attaway. "So I would like to see good, honest, hardworking people elected."

The democratic primary is August 14. The winner will go on to Super Tuesday, which is the first Tuesday in November.
