Friday is the deadline for qualifying as a candidate for area school boards

Qualifying packets may be obtained in the Bolivar County Circuit Clerk’s office and they must be completed and turned in no later than 5 pm. Candidates must complete the qualifying statement of intent and submit it with a petition, which must include at least 50- signatures of district electors. It is recommended to obtain 100- signatures in case some do not meet qualifications. Candidates are responsible for determining which school district they qualify for and the petition must match. School board members must have a high school diploma or its equivalent. Elections for school board will be in the General Election November 3. Other positions being voted on include North Bolivar Consolidated Position 2, West Bolivar Consolidated Position 2 and the Cleveland School District Position 5.
