Candidates wishing to run were required to file by the signature filing deadline April 16, 2012. On January 27, 2012, Judge Gary Sharpe moved the primary date from September 11, 2012 to June 26, 2012 in order to allow for sufficient time to send absentee ballots to military voters.
Heading into the election the incumbent is Ann Marie Buerkle (R), who was first elected to the House in 2010. Due to redistricting, Buerkle is running in the redrawn 24th district; 28th district incumbent Louise Slaughter is running in the new 25th.
