The three state lawmakers who represent Dunwoody in the Georgia General Assembly face opponents in the May 20 primary election.

Also, eight candidates filed to run for DeKalb County sheriff in the nonpartisan election held the same day.

In the past, those elections have been held in July, but a court ruling moved the date back this year to allow at least 45 days for the state’s runoff period so there’s enough time for military ballots to be returned.

Here are candidates who qualified for election to seats representing Dunwoody.
