List of political candidates on the Allen County ballot of the Indiana May Primary Election

| April 26, 2016

ALLEN COUNTY—On May 3, eligible citizens will go to the polls to vote in the Indiana Primary Election. As experienced voters know, the Primary Election is not designed to actually elect people to office but, rather, to choose which candidates will go on to compete in the November General Election, during which voters will make a decision as to who finally will be elected to serve terms in public office.

Indiana has a closed primary system, meaning that voters must choose which political party’s primary in which they wish to vote (e.g. Republican or Democrat) and can only vote for candidates of that party.

The following is a list of candidates who will appear on the Primary Election Ballot in Allen County. Please note that some district offices, such as those for County Commissioner-District 1 and the various state offices such as senator and representative, will only appear on ballots in polling places in that particular district.

Also note that some names in the presidential Primary Election for Indiana are of candidates who have “officially suspended” their campaigns might still be on the ballot. We suggest that you cast your votes for candidates actively seeking office. For example, on the Democrat side, only Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are actively seeking the presidential nomination; on the Republican side, Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Donald Trump are the active candidates.

Given Indiana’s closed primary system, we have separated the candidates by political party. For offices specific to Allen County, we have listed both party’s candidates under the same office title; in the case of state and national offices, we have listed each party’s slate as separate lists.

Please note that each political party might not have filed candidates in every single category.
