Sheriff Sam Elliott, appointed by the county commissioners in December, has filed for election.

County Treasurer Kris Bledsoe and County Assessor Derrick Wharff have both filed for re-election, and so far, have not seen challengers.

At the state level, Yamhill County head deputy district attorney Kate Lynch has filed to run for District Attorney.

Circuit Court Judge Jennifer Chapman has filed for re-election.

State Reps. Anna Scharf and Lucetta Elmer, both Republicans, have filed for re-election, and so far, are not facing any challengers.
