A candidate for a county office shall file:

These must be filed with the County Auditor by 4:00 PM on the 64th day before the election. Please contact the County Auditor regarding the required number of signatures for the petition.

What is a crossover vote?

In the June election, you may vote for candidates in only one political party. That means you may not vote for a Republican in one office and a Democrat for another office. You must vote for candidates in one political party. This requirement is for statewide political races on the June ballot only. Political races on the November ballot may be voted any way you like. The voting equipment used at every polling location will notify you if you have incorrectly voted for candidates in more than one political party.
