Calhoun Commissioner David Barr, a Republican, has not made a decision regarding running again for the position. Barr's commission position will be on the 2002 ballot, with several people expected to compete in the primary.

Democrat's reportedly interested include Steve Whited, who works as an administrator for Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center, and Lynn Gilbert-Morris, local dentist.

Reports are also afloat that local hardware store owner Rick Sampson might run for the position. Donald Little, well-known Democrat leader, has also expressed some interest in running.

Numerous names have been dropped regarding people interested in running for the magistrate position currently held by Richard Postalwait, who was recently appointed to fill the position until the General Election.

Members of the local Democratic and Republican Executive Committee are to be elected, along with a member of the Calhoun County Board of Education. Delegate Bill Stemple will be running for the House of Delegates, a district which now includes about half of Clay, all of Calhoun and about half of Gilmer. The Senate seat is now in a new Senatorial District currently being served from Marshall and Ohio counties. The new district stretches from southern Calhoun County to Wheeling Island.
