The eight Hancock County legislative races are good to go for the Nov. 8 election. Each of the two Senate and six House seats are contested by candidates from the two major political parties except for House District 12, in the eastern corner of the county, where the incumbent Republican is being challenged by a candidate not enrolled in a party.

Whoever wins the House elections, Hancock County will again have a delegation light on experience. None of our local representatives was termed out, but in three of the six House districts the incumbents opted not to run for re-election.
