School election is Tuesday
Polls will be open on Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for voters in the Hoxie, Lawrence County and Sloan-Hendrix school districts to cast ballots for school board races.
Early voting will continue through Monday in the Lawrence County Clerk's Office.
Voters in the Hoxie School District will decide between incumbent Jeff Worlow, Dennis Coggins and Sherry Moore.
The Lawrence County School District ballot will have a race between incumbent John Householder and Brittany Schmidt.
In the Sloan-Hendrix district, incumbent Aaron Murphy will face John "Greg" Starnes. In addition, Ricky Benson filed to complete an unexpired term for the seat he has held as an appointee since Chris Jones resigned in 2015. He was the only candidate for that seat.
Hillcrest School District will conduct its election through early voting only because there is not a race and no change in millage. Phillip L. Penn is the only candidate for the board. Incumbent Roger Helms chose not to seek reelection.
