With the general election two months away, Banner County has a full ballot for the local offices.

The 540 registered voters will be looking to find the right people to fill the positions. Citizens can register to vote up until Oct. 21. Election day is Nov. 8.

For the Banner County Clerk, Lisa Cross is vying for her first elected term. Katie West will not be on the ballot, but has submitted the write-in forms.

The resignation of county Treasurer Monty Stoddard opened up the treasurer position. Stoddard's deputy Kathy Natale is on the ballot, and the newly appointed Treasurer Chelsea Mossberg has completed the paperwork to run as a write-in.

The county assessor is the only county office that requires a state certificate to file, and two people will be on the ballot. They are current Assessor Bernice Huffman and Kacy Krakow.

The two current Banner County commissioners whose terms are up have re-filed to run. They are Bob Post and Sharon Sandberg. Four write-in candidates also have declared an interest. They are Robin Darnell, Charles Laif Anderson, Debra Genz, and Eddie Shaul.

Finally, running unopposed for Banner County Sheriff is deputy K. Zane Hopkins.
