Write-in votes will likely elect school board members: School board filings


Write-in candidates may be filling a number of area school board seats next year.

A number of school districts in the area have more open school board seats than they have candidates. Ballots for the Nov. 2 general election are set, now that filing has closed for school district and city offices.

In races without enough candidates to fill all seats, write-in votes will determine who wins the open seats.
