With a special Mid-Prairie school board election set for Aug. 28, the deadline for anyone wishing to seek the seat to get on the ballot is fast approaching.

The deadline to submit nominating papers is 4 p.m., Friday, Aug. 3.

On Monday, school board President Jeremy Pickard clarified how the election came to be.

He explained that, by law, the board had the option to choose someone to fill the vacant seat.

“We filled the seat with Emily Uhl (on July 9),” Pickard said. “Our past practice has been to pick the person who ran and wasn’t elected. We were not required to have an election.”

The board voted to place Uhl in the seat vacated by George Schaefer’s late-June resignation.
