Monroe County voters to elect new sheriff

Betty Q. Hixson

This year’s election season has kicked off, with candidates for some local, state and national offices filing  paperwork last week to get their names on ballots for the May primary.

While midterm elections do not include voting for president or governor, 2022 will feature some high-profile races, including for Congress, the Indiana House and some county offices: auditor, recorder, sheriff, prosecutor, three judges, four county council positions and a county board of commissioners seat. Some school board seats also are up for grabs.

U.S. Sen. Todd Young, a Republican, has announced he plans to seek a second term, though he will face challenges in both the primary and general elections.

As it is every two years, all U.S. House seats will be up for re-election, including Indiana’s 9th District, which will feature at least two Bloomington residents in the Democratic primary. Isak Nti Asare, an Indiana University professor, and Matt Fyfe, a local math teacher, will vie to get the chance to face Republican U.S. Rep. Trey Hollingsworth in the fall, assuming Hollingsworth defeats any GOP primary challengers.
