Two seats are up for grabs in this year’s school board election and the two incumbents both say they will seek re-election. Incumbents Dean Berkram and Doug Ray confirmed they will be filing for re-election before next month’s deadline.

Nominating petitions are now available for anyone interested in running for one of the two three-year terms on the school board.

The last day to file a nomination petition is March 27 at 4 p.m., noted District Clerk Scott Laird.

The terms of Berkram and Ray expire in May. Berkram, who serves as the school board’s vice chair, is completing his third three-year term. Ray is finishing his second three-year term on the board.

To file for election, a candidate must pick up a nomination petition from the school district’s Central Office and then have it signed by at least 10 registered vot ers living within the boundaries of the local school district.

Individuals who are asked to sign nominating petitions may not sign more petitions than there are trustee positions open, which in this case is two, reminded Laird.

If you are not registered to vote in the May 6 election, you have until April 3 to do so. Absentee ballots will be available by April 16, informed Laird.

For more information on the school election, contact Laird at 873-2229.
