Noon Monday was the deadline to file for the Nov. 5, general election. Below are the filings as listed on the Barton County Clerk’s website.

The ballot will include a number of elections. These are city, school board, Barton Community College, Ellinwood Hospital District and Cottonwood Extension District No. 17 races.

There will be no need for local primaries. The top vote getters will claim the seat (if there is one opening) or seats (if there is more than one). 

But, if no one filed, the position would go to a write-in candidate. If there is no write-in, the governing body will make an appointment.
