Secretary of State Candidate Roland Riemers is going to the State Supreme Court on July 31, as he tries to get his name on the November ballot.

Riemers didn’t get enough votes in June to qualify for the November ballot. He requested a recount from the Secretary of State’s office, but they denied that request saying a recount from the June election would only apply in his own party, not across party lines.

Dem-NPL candidate Josh Boschee is the only candidate on the ballot. Incumbent Al Jaeger has until Sept. 4 to submit signatures to get his name on the November ballot as an Independent candidate.
