When voters step into the booth next month for the general election, they may notice their choices are largely one-sided. While there were a couple heatedly contested seats in the primaries, the greatest competition was within the Republican Party. Sheridan County Democratic Chair, Hollis Hackman, noted his party is lacking candidates on the local level.
As far as local offices, there are only two democrats running. However, while Republicans were able to come up with at least one candidate for most open seats, Democrats weren't so lucky.
The kicker is that many citizens who are active in their respective parties don't want to take on more responsibility.
The Democratic Party has new office space next to the Wyo Theater on Main Street. Sheridanites can stop by seven days a week to get information and campaign materials.
