2021 Election

(Most links on this page will take you to external sites.) 

Depending on where you live in the county, you will vote for municipal governing bodies – mayors and city council members and local school board members. See the Shawnee County Election Office’s list of candidates.  These are non-partisan elections so the candidate’s party is not included on the candidate list.

Find information about candidates at Vote411.org.
