Qualifying deadlines for school board seats

By: Ellen Graves The Choctaw Plaindealer

September 7 will be the qualifying deadline for anyone seeking to run for election to the school board.

District 3 and 4 for the school board are up for election. Qualifying began August 8. Qualifications include being a qualified elector in the county and district in which he/she seeks election. Also, a petition with 50 signatures is required.

School Board districts are the same as supervisor districts. District 3 School Board Member Linda McDaniel and District 4 School Board Member Bertha Miller are the incumbents.

Everything must be turned into the Circuit Clerk’s office prior to 5 p.m. on September 7 in order for enough time to qualify the names on the petitions.

Election day will be November 6. To vote you must be registered 30 days prior to November 6.
