In Warren County, two democrats are squaring off for the circuit court clerk position.
But what exactly does the circuit court clerk do?
Driver's licenses, court records are among some of the things you'll find in the circuit court clerk's office.
"When you think about the clerk's office, we affect the person from the time they turn 16 after they get their driver's license until after their death," said Warren County Circuit Court Clerk democrat, Pat Howell Goad.
Goad also said her office deals with traffic violations, scheduling hearings, filing pleadings, divorces and more.
In her thirty years in office she's seen a lot and she said her responsibilities have grown.
"I-65 coming through here, the amount of traffic tickets. One of the things we did to help the trucker, if he had a weight load that was to much on a refrigerated truck, he needs to be able to get up and moving if he's got a citation instead of sitting," said Goad.
Goad is up for re-election and her opponent, former employee, democrat Brandi Duvall has a different idea on how the office should be run.
"A clerk should be able to step in the role of any position in their office, and that's not the case here. We need a hands on working clerk to do this job. Office procedures need to be updated according to state guidelines. Currently, we have court records that are not organized or secure. According to state guidelines, open and closed files should be filed together. Currently, they are not, they are filed separately, and this causes chaos in the office when trying to locate a file," said Duvall.
"The clerk's office is not a discretionary office in making decisions on how things are filed, there is a prescribed method. We are under the administrative office of the courts," said Goad.
And now, it's up to the voters to decide who they want in office.
This is the only local race for democrats to vote on in Warren County and there are no local races for republicans.
