Statewide, voters will decide on US Senator and Representative, Governor and Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, and Commissioner of Insurance. Voters will also decide on a constitutional amendment about abortion rights.

Clay County residents will decide on their state representative in the 64th district which is currently between incumbent Rep. Suzie Carlson and Lewis Bloom, a rural Clay Center farmer and stockman.
