Candidate Information

Running for public office can be an appealing idea. This nation and state were founded by public spirited individuals that desired to serve their neighbors and form the laws that preside over our society.

Although, the Hancock County Clerk’s Office – Election Division strive to inform candidates for public office of the laws that govern their candidacy, it is the responsibility of each candidate to know the regulations that are required to be met.

It is hopeful that the link to the State of Indiana’s Election Division will be a beneficial resource to all candidates.

Keep in mind; it is the responsibility of the candidate to meet the required financial and other filling deadlines; therefore, the calendar may also be of assistance.
