Many can­di­dates locally met Monday’s fil­ing dead­line for Inde­pen­dents seek­ing office in the Novem­ber elec­tion.

In Henry County, two incum­bent Repub­li­cans (Travis Sheaf­fer and Jim Her­sh­berger) have cho­sen to run as Inde­pen­dents for Napoleon City Coun­cil. Chal­lenger Heather Wil­son also filed as an Inde­pen­dent and Repub­li­can write-in John Tassler has also filed. Two other can­di­dates met an ear­lier dead­line in Feb­ru­ary.

Six peo­ple are now seek­ing the four Napoleon City Coun­cil seats up for grabs in Novem­ber.

In Defi­ance County, Inde­pen­dent incum­bent Hicksville Vil­lage Coun­cil­man Ron Bev­erly filed for reelec­tion before Monday’s dead­line for Inde­pen­dents passed. That means Bev­erly will now join incum­bent Repub­li­cans Michael Barth, Michael Headley and Ron Jones on the bal­lot in Novem­ber.

In Put­nam County, seven Inde­pen­dents filed for two vil­lage coun­cil races in Leip­sic and Colum­bus Grove.
