Paulding voters have their choices of a variety of federal, state and local candidates — in addition to president — and two proposed amendments to the state constitution in this year’s General Election.

Not everyone will see all candidates listed because of the district they reside in. However, the ballot will include contested races for:

- President, Democratic incumbent Barack Obama is opposed by Republican Mitt Romney and Libertarian Gary Johnson.

- U.S. House District 14, Republican incumbent Tom Graves is opposed by Democrat Danny Grant.

- Two Georgia Public Service Commission seats; Republican incumbent Chuck Eaton is opposed by Democrat Stephen Oppenheimer and Libertarian Brad Ploeger; and Republican incumbent Stan Wise is opposed by Libertarian David Staples.

- A Special Republican primary for State Senate District 30 between Mike Dugan, Bill Hembree, Jim Naughton and Glenn Richardson.

- State House District 66, Republican Bob Snelling and Democrat Kimberly Alexander.

- State House District 67, Republican Micah Gravley and Democrat Leigh Mcmutry.

Paulding voters also will be asked to choose “yes” or “no” on amending the state constitution to allow:

- Charter school applicants to appeal to a state board if denied by a local school board.

- The state government to enter multi-year leases on property.

Unopposed candidates are on the ballot for State Senate District 31; State House Districts 17 and 19; County Sheriff; Tax Commissioner; County Commission Chairman; County Superior Court Clerk; Probate Judge; Surveyor; Coroner; Magistrate Judge; School Board At-Large position; School Board Districts 1, 3 and 4; County Commission Post 1; and Coosa River Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor.
