One announced candidate for Walworth County Sheriff will not be on the ballot.

But Republican candidates Undersheriff Kurt Picknell, Elkhorn, and sheriff’s Deputy Ken Brauer, LaGrange, will face off in the Aug. 12 primary.

Democrat Csaba Keller, town of Walworth, did not meet the filing deadline and will not be on the ballot, according to the Walworth County Clerk’s office.

The winner in the sheriff’s primary will probably win the general election.

Walworth County Circuit Clerk Sheila Reiff, a Republican, has filed for re-election, and she will be the only one on the ballot for that position in the Nov. 4 general election.

At the state level, final economic interest statements were not due until 4:30 p.m. Thursday, after the Regional News deadline.

However, nomination papers and declarations of candidacy were due Tuesday.

Those who did not file those papers on time will not appear on the ballot.

According to the state Government Accountability Board website:

State Senate District 11:

State Rep. Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, has filed all of his paperwork and will be on the November ballot.

Daniel Kilkenny, a Walworth County Board supervisor and declared Democrat, has met the deadlines for his declaration and nomination papers, but his ballot status was still pending on Tuesday.

Assembly District 33, Nass’ current seat:

Republicans Cody Horlacher, Elkhorn; Scott Johnson, Jefferson; and Bill Lurvey, Palmyra, have filed their papers and are approved for the Aug. 12 primary.

Announced candidate Ben Bourdo, East Troy, did not file his nomination papers on time, and will not be on the ballot.

Assembly District 32:

State Rep. Tyler August, R-Lake Geneva, is seeking re-election and will face no primary opposition in August.

Lake Geneva Alderman Alan Kupsik announced as a Democrat for the District 32 seat. His status was pending on Tuesday.

Assembly District 31:

State Rep. Amy Loudenbeck, R-Clinton, is running for re-election. She is facing no ballot opposition for either the primary or the general election.
