Republican voters in the March primary will find Wes Barr’s name listed first in the GOP contest for Sangamon County Sheriff.
Barr won a lottery conducted Wednesday at the county election offices.
Both he and opponent Jack Campbell turned in their nominating petitions at the start of the filing period last month, so the lottery was required to determine ballot placement.
Campbell will be listed second in the two-man race.
In the race for governor, Bill Brady will be listed first among the four GOP candidates for governor.
On the Democratic ballot, challenger Tio Hardiman will be listed ahead of incumbent Governor Pat Quinn.
However, Quinn supporters are challenging Hardiman’s petitions… and Hardiman is also challenging Quinn’s.
