The election will be held Nov. 3 in conjunction with the general election. Early voting is set for Oct. 19-30.

Filed for a new term on the school board is Matt Atkins, Place 4. Atkins currently serves as board president and is so far unopposed.

Also unopposed early in the filing period is Bryan Brokaw, seeking Place 3.

Three hopefuls seeking the Place 7 seat are Kylie Reising, Brenda Scherer and Donny McKay.
