WILLMAR — As of Tuesday afternoon, no one had filed to run for Willmar School Board this year.

Three four-year terms are open for election this year. The terms of board members Mary Amon, Linda Mathiasen and Laura Warne will expire at the end of this year.

Filing opened a week ago and will close at 5 p.m. Aug. 14. There is no primary for the school board election, and all who file will be on the Nov. 6 general election ballot.

Candidates may go to the school district office during regular business hours. The office was recently moved to the second floor of the Willmar Education and Arts Center, 611 Fifth St. S.W. The filing fee is $2.
