Candidate filing underway for May 6

According to County Clerk Debbie Richardson, filing for candidacy for the May 6 primary began on Jan. 8 and ends at noon, Feb. 7.

Those offices on the ballot for the May primary include: Secretary of State, Auditor of State, Treasurer of State, U.S. Representative-District 6, State Representative-District 54, State Representative-District 55, Judge of the Superior Court, Prosecuting Attorney, County Sheriff, County Commissioner Northern District, County Council Members in District 1, District 2, District 3 and District 4, all Township Trustees, all Township Advisory Board Members, Democrat Precinct Committeemen, Democrat State Convention Delegates and Republican State Convention Delegates.

“The Primary is a very important part of the election process,” Richardson said. “This is the voter’s opportunity to cast their ballot for the party candidate they want to be on the General Election ballot in November.”

Some candidates have already made their intentions known by filing this week.

Rush County Prosecutor Phil Caviness is seeking a second term. Caviness filed his Declaration of Candidacy for the primary election on Wednesday, Jan. 8, with the Secretary of State’s Election Commission.

“It’s hard to believe that it has been four years already and another election year has arrived,” Caviness said. “This job presents new challenges every day, and it has been an honor to serve Rush County as its prosecuting attorney.” He added, “I hope to have the opportunity to continue this important work for another four years.”

Caviness won the Republican nomination in a close primary election in 2010, and then defeated another challenger in the general election. He took office on Jan. 1, 2011. Caviness served as Chief Deputy Prosecutor in Rush County for the previous nine years before winning the office.

Rush County resident Steve Comer also filed his intention to run for Rush County Sheriff earlier this week.

Local candidates may file their candidacy in the Clerk’s Office.
