Jasper County residents wishing to run as non-political party candidates in this year's open seats in county government have until 5 p.m. Wednesday to file nomination papers with the Jasper County Auditor's Office.
The filing period opened earlier this month.
Jasper County voters will currently select from Democrat Denny Stevenson and Republican Doug Cupples for the open seat on the Jasper County Board of Supervisors. Democrat John Halferty faces Republican Steve Hoffman in the sheriff's race and Democrat Dennis Parrott faces Republican Laurie Nelson for the auditor's seat.
Stevenson, Cupples, Halferty and Parrott were elected at the primary elections in June to represent their parties on the November ballott. Hoffman and Nielsen were selected at a special party convention to have their names placed on the ballot.
In House District 29, which encompasses most of Jasper County, Democrat Dan Kelley faces Republican Gabe Swersie. In House District 28, which encompasses the southern part of the county including the communities of Lynnville, Sully, Monroe and Reasnor, Republican Greg Heartsill will face Democrat Megan Suhr.
