With only hours to go before the filing deadline for the November elections, Shawnee County's ballot is drawing interest.

Elections Commissioner Elizabeth Ensley says three people filed Monday for the County Commission races.

Two of those candidates were in District 3, where incumbent Democrat Ted Ensley has said he'll run again. Mike Meier and Parrish Stevens, both Republicans, filed for the race. Meier previously held the District 2 seat, but redistricting now puts him in the 3rd district.

Michelle Brokaw filed for the District 2 seat. The Republican will challenge incumbent Democrat Vic Miller.

In other Shawnee County races, Republican Bill Singer filed Monday to face Shawnee County Treasurer Larry Wilson, a Democrat.

Sheriff Dick Barta, Register of Deeds Marilyn Nichols and Clerk Cyndi Beck are all unopposed.

The Shawnee County District Attorney's race drew competition. Republican Eric Rucker has forced a primary race for incumbent Robert Hecht. For the Democrats, Jerry Berger and Chad Taylor are on the ballot. DA candidates file with the Secretary of State's office.
