CONYERS — Two candidates in the election for the Rockdale Clerk of Courts Office appear to be headed for a runoff.
With no incumbent in the race, three Democrat candidates qualified to become the county’s next clerk of courts: Sharif Akeem Fulcher, Mallory Minor and Janice Morris. Fulcher, 5,488 votes, 32.06%; and Morris, 7,167 votes, 41.87%, will likely face off in the Aug. 11 runoff.
There were no Republican candidates in the primary.
The winner of the runoff will succeed former Clerk of Courts Ruth Wilson, who retired earlier this year. Her chief deputy clerk, James Cabe, was sworn in as her successor in March. Cabe did not seek election to the post.
