Two people — Rolando Alvarez and Scott Vickery — will be running in the March 19 special election to fill the vacant Barrow County Board of Commissioners District 3 seat.

Qualifying ended at noon Friday.

Alvarez, who had been the District 8 at-large member of the Barrow County Board of Education since 2014, resigned that seat earlier this month in order to run for the BOC seat. Vickery is retired from a three-decade career with Gwinnett County government.

The seat has been vacant since late October, when former commissioner Roger Wehunt resigned due to health reasons.
