Candidates for the board of education in 17 LeFlore County school districts will file their declarations of candidacy starting Dec. 4 and continuing through Wednesday, according to LeFlore County election board secretary Sharon Steele.
Steele said the official filing period ends at 5 p.m. on Dec. 6. All candidate filings will occur at the LeFlore County Election Board office at 103 North Church Street in Poteau.
The board of education positions at stake will be filled at the annual school election on Feb. 13. If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the total votes cast in the election, the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes will meet in a runoff election on April 3.
