The State Senate, attorney general, state representative, U.S. Senate and state executives, including auditor general and treasurer are the political positions on an Indiana election ballot. Other areas include state courts and school boards, according to Ballotpedia. A political party sponsors all positions.
As of 2015, the Republican Party fills most of the political positions in the state, claims Ballotpedia. The Indiana state held its primary elections on May 6, 2014, seven months before the general elections that took place on Nov. 4, 2014. To contest in the primaries, the candidates had to meet the signature filing requirements. Indiana features a mixed primary system; voters are not required to register with a party, but the ballots issued to them correspond to the party choices in the previous elections.
