DETROIT (WXYZ) - Hectic was the word of the day at the Wayne County Clerk's Office.
It was jammed packed with candidates who had until four o'clock to file for more than sixty elected positions that will appear on the ballot in the August primary.
The positions include, but are not limited to, U.S. Congress, and State Representative. Wayne County positions include Commissioner, Sheriff, Prosecutor, Treasurer and Clerk.
There are judge's seats to fill on the district level as well as circuit court and Court of Appeals. In addition there are a variety of elective offices to be filled in thirty-five Townships throughout Wayne County.
Most of the candidates had to appear at the Clerk's Office to swear an oath and show proof of their identity and eligibility.
As the deadline approached speculation continued about whether former Sheriff and former Police Chief Warren Evans would file and run against Sheriff Benny Napoleon.
He did not file but indicated he's considering the possibility of running for other another office in the future.
