And now there are 12.

The races for Douglas County commissioner seats are heating up with two more candidates filing in the last few days.


The newest contenders are Charlie Meyer and Don Kortie Jr., who both filed for the District 4 seat.

The filing period runs through June 5.

Because of population changes and redistricting, all five county commissioner seats are up for election this fall and some of their jurisdictions have changed.
