Carolyn Cosby submitted a nomination petition with about 7,750 signatures on July 8, in an effort to get her name added to the ballot in November to run against Cherokee Commission Chairman Buzz Ahrens.
Today, the Board of Elections will hold a special meeting to consider her petition.
The meeting is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. at the Albert L. Stone Elections Building, 400 East Main St. in downtown Canton.
Ahrens defeated challenger Jackie Archer in the Republican primary election in May, and is now unopposed in the general election.
If Cosby’s petition is verified by the Elections Office, she will run against Ahrens as an independent candidate in November.
