5 candidates contend for vacant Polk County judge seat

Polk County voters will choose only one judge in this election cycle. Five candidates are running to become a county court judge with the 10th Judicial Circuit, based in Bartow. The position in Group 8 is open because Judge Susan Barber is vacating her seat to seek a position as a circuit judge. Barber faced no opposition and will assume her new title in January.
