43.21  Township office.

The name of a candidate for a township office shall be printed on the official primary ballot of the candidate's party if the candidate files the candidate's personal affidavit, in the form prescribed by section 43.18, with the commissioner not earlier than ninety-two days nor later than five o'clock p.m. of the sixty-ninth day before the primary election. If before that time there is presented to the commissioner a nomination paper signed by at least ten eligible electors of the township requesting that the name of any person be placed on the primary ballot as a candidate for a township office, and the nomination paper is not accompanied by the candidate's personal affidavit, the commissioner shall advise the candidate that such an affidavit is required before the candidate's name may be placed on the ballot.
