Crandell, who was running for reelection, died Aug. 4 from injuries suffered when he was thrown from a horse while riding near his home in Heber, according to the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office. An autopsy ruled out any medical issues that may have caused him to fall, such as a heart attack. He was 68.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, in an Aug. 5 letter to election officials in Coconino, Gila, Navajo and Yavapai counties, cleared up confusion overwhether write-in candidates would be acceptable in the Tuesday, Aug. 26, primary.

Crandell was unopposed in the Republican primary for Legislative District 6.

Bennett noted that early voting began July 31 and the ballots have been printed with Crandell as the only candidate.
