Live Oak —

Qualifying continues until noon Friday for the city of Live Oak election.

Those offices up for grabs are mayor (nonpartisan, $17,409.60 annually); city council Districts 1 and 4 (nonpartisan, $14,284.32 annually) and city clerk (nonpartisan, $49,212.80 annually).

Yulee Sr. (incumbent); city council District 4: Frank C. Davis and Jerry L. Poole. Adam Prins is the incumbent for District 4 but has not announced whether he will seek reelection.
