Following are county offices that will be on the June 6 Buena Vista County primary ballot.
The county attorney, recorder, and treasurer offices will be on the ballot.
Also open are three supervisor positions, including: District 1 supervisor - Barnes, Scott, Brooke, Elk, Nokomis, Maple Valley, and part of Hayes Township; District 2 supervisor - Lee, Lincoln, Poland, Fairfield, Coon, and Newell Townships; District 3 supervisor - Washington, Grant, Providence, most of Hayes Township and the north central part of Storm Lake.
In 2006, the township clerk and one township trustee for each township will be elected on a non-partisan basis which means that these offices will not appear on the primary election ballot. Candidates will file nomination papers in August, just like any independent candidate for county office, to get their name on the general election ballot.
The first day to file nomination papers for county office is March 6 in the election commissioner's office (Buena Vista County Auditor's Office in the Courthouse). The last day to file is 5 p.m. March 29.
Based on election results from the 2004 general election, Democrats need a minimum of 71 signatures and Republicans need 98.
Any elector, a person possessing the qualifications required to register to vote, whether or not he or she is registered, may sign nominations for as many or as few candidates as he or she wishes.
Nomination papers are available at the Buena Vista County Election Commissioner's (Auditor's) office or online at http://www.sos.state.ia.us/elections/ele...
