Candidates qualifying for Cobb County offices in the May 24 primary

Here is the list of candidates who qualified for Cobb County offices for the May 24, 2022 primary. Superior Court judges are considered state positions, but we included them here because they serve in primarily a county capacity.

We will publish a list for other offices that will be on Cobb County ballots later (U.S. Representatives, statewide offices, etc) but in the meantime, you can get that information from the search tool on the Secretary of State’s Candidate Details page.

We’ve divided the tables into Democratic, Republican and Non-partisan. (No third-party candidates qualified for county offices this year).

We removed phone numbers and home addresses from the tables, but further information on the candidates may be available on their campaign websites or on the Secretary of State’s Candidate Details page.
