Ardoin was working as interim secretary of state.
Collins-Greenup, from Clinton, is a city court administrator and in a clerk of court's office.
The election will fill the remaining year of the term of Tom Schedler, who resigned as secretary of state in May amid allegations he sexually harassed a female employee.
