Three Republicans and one Democrat have filed their candidacy for the special election on the first day. Jeff Hall, Carolyn McLarty and Travis Templin are the Republicans to file so far. Amber Jensen is the only Democrat in the race as of Monday.

Rep. Casey Murdock has announced he would run for the SD 27 seat, but did not file on the first day. Candidates have until Wednesday to file.
