There will be no contested races in area school board elections, slated for Tuesday, Sept. 10.
In fact, there will be a few seats that will need to be filled by write-in ballot.
There is no declared candidate for District 2 in the Twin Rivers District, and there is only one candidate to fill three seats on the Gilmore City-Bradgate Board of Education.
In GC-B, the seats of current board members Ron Warren, Beau Jergens and Judy Marchant are all up for election, but only Marchant has turned in papers to run. The filing deadline was last week.
In Twin Rivers, Davanna Fedkenheuer has filed papers to run for the District 1 seat, while incumbent board member Tom Olson is running for District 3. The District 2 seat will have to be filled by write-in.
All seats are up for election in Humboldt. Candidates include Janell Smith in District 1, Kyle Kluender in District 2, Randy Hildreth in District 3, Brody Clark in District 4, and Suzanne Newton running for the at-large seat. Smith and Newton are first time school board candidates.
