On day two of the filing period, no Osages filed candidacy papers, according to the ON Election Office on March 16. The filing period stretches through April 2.
The day before, three candidates filed their papers by closing time. Berbon Hamilton was the first to file and later in the day Rosemary Shaw and John Maker did the same.
