Campbell County voters will head to the polls on Tuesday to decide which candidates facing primary elections will advance to the General Election in November.

In Campbell County, 13 county-level primary elections will take place. See below for a full list of candidates.

FTM has worked hard to bring you more Campbell County campaign news than any other source. As Tuesday approaches, here's a recap of everything you need to know before casting your ballot:

Campbell County Judge-Executive Republican Primary

Steve Pendery (left) & Kevin Sell (Right)
The race for the Republican Judge-Executive nomination, between incumbent Steve Pendery and challenger Kevin Sell, has probably been the most contentious and gathered the most attention throughout the campaign. The two men have faced off before, last time in the 2010 Judge-Executive contest.

The winner will face Democrat and current County Commissioner Ken Rechtin in November.
