- Sheriff Bill Elder is hoping to be reelected.
Republican primaries will take place in June in several El Paso County races, reflecting the March 24 county assembly.
Sheriff Bill Elder will face a primary challenge from Mike Angley, a former Air Force security officer. In the north county commissioner District 1, Holly Williams and Calandra Vargas will face off, while Cami Bremer and Vickie Tonkins will compete in the largely urban county commissioner District 5. Those seats currently are held by Darryl Glenn and Peggy Littleton, who are term-limited.
Chris Whitney, also a Republican, who had submitted petition signatures to gain a District 1 ballot slot, fell short of the required number but could challenge that ruling. In Colorado House District 21, incumbent Lois Landgraf will face Raymond Garcia, and in HD14 Shane Sandridge got a primary opponent when Kanda Calef won a ballot spot after being nominated from the floor.
Democrats will host their county assembly on March 31.
