However, in some of those races, there were write-in candidates. The attorney for the Rutherford County Election Commission explained that since there was "no candidate who timely filed", there would also be NO write-in to qualify. The attorney explained, since this was the "primary race", when the "general election" is held, the candidates will be on the ballot as INDEPENDENTS.
