Harrison County residents interested in running for their respective school board can now sign up at the clerk's office in downtown Corydon. Candidates will have until Aug. 22 at noon to file a petition to run for a school board seat. Those candidates will be on the Nov. 4 General Election ballot.
As of yesterday (Tuesday), there were no candidates.
Four seats will be up for grabs on the South Harrison Community School Corp. Board of Trustees: District 1, held by Joyce E. Bliss; two seats for District 2, held by Mary Jean Mathes and Karen Sue Lopp; and District 5, Vickie Engleman.
Voters in the North Harrison Community School Corp. will see three seats on the November ballot: at large, currently held by Veronica J. (Sieg) Battista; Jackson Township, represented by Marla Adams; and Spencer Township, held by Steve Hanger.
The Lanesville Community School Corp. has two seats, currently held by Donnie Hussung and Ronald Wolfe, up for election.
