The annual school election is Tuesday, with the Lawrence County School District being the only district required to conduct the election through polling sites.
The district is asking for 39.3 mills in school taxes, which is a 6.9 mill increase.
Hillcrest, Hoxie and Sloan-Hendrix districts are conducting their elections entirely through early and absentee voting because there are no contested school board races in the county.
Those who are seeking election to school board positions are: Hillcrest, Danny Morgan; Hoxie, Wesley Gates; Lawrence County, Vickie Mitchell; and Sloan-Hendrix, Chris Jones. All will serve five-year terms.
Early voting will continue through Monday in the county clerk's office for all districts.
Polls will be open for Lawrence County School District patrons on Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Polling sites are: Campbell 1, 2, 3 and 4, Cache, Richwoods and Promise Land at Lawrence County Meeting Room, Marion at Alicia City Hall, Duty at Portia City Hall, Black River at Powhatan Community Center and Black Rock at Black Rock City Hall.
