Voters will have some choices to make on their primary ballot this year.

Those choices will help shape some runoff in the Nov. 3 General Election, with candidates vying for county, state and national positions.

The filing period for the May 5 Primary Election closed at noon Friday.

Voters who choose a Democratic ballot will select three candidates as their party’s nominations for the three county council at-large seats on this year’s ballot. Their choices are Matt Brosmer, Mikayla Granados, Michael Kendall and Duncan Mathies.

Democrats will also choose a U.S. representative District 8 nominee from Ron Drake, E. Thomasina Marsili and Mike Webster. And they will select a U.S. presidential candidate from a field of nine on the ballot, at the moment: Joseph Biden, Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg, Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, Elizabeth Warren and Andrew Yang.

On the Republican ballot, voters will choose their candidate for U.S. president between Donald Trump and Bill Weld.

Although both Eric Holcomb and Brian Roth have both filed for the Republican nomination for Indiana governor, state party delegates will select their party’s candidate for governor and for attorney general. This will happen this summer during each party’s state convention.

Here is a list of those who have filed for office according to the state’s listing of “2020 Primary Election Candiates.”
