Voters will decide two state propositions and the race for several local races Tuesday when they head to the polls in the primary election.
There are eight candidates running for District One Supervisor, the seat vacated by Jon McQuiston. One candidate could win outright with a majority of votes - 50 percent plus one. If not, the top two vote-getters move on to a runoff.
Only two candidates are facing off for the Kern County District Four Supervisorial seat - Harley Pinson and David Couch.
Three people are running for District Five. Tim Tarver and Leticia Perez are running against the incumbent, Karen Goh.
Measure G is one of the most publicized local measures. The measure would impose restrictions on locating medical marijuana dispensaries operating in Kern County.
Proposition 29 is a state measure to add one dollar per pack to cigarettes to help fund cancer research.
