BOSWELL — An annual school runoff election will be held for the Board of Education Office No. I-1 in Boswell School District on Tuesday, April 6.
State law requires the runoff election if no candidate in the regular annual school election receives more than 50% of the total votes cast.
Darlene Rickman, secretary of the Choctaw County Election Board, said that Board of Education candidates John Kerr and Robbie Chandler received the highest number of votes in the Feb. 9 election and therefore will meet in the runoff election on April 6.
Kerr received 117 votes in the Annual School Election, while Chandler received 82 votes. A total 308 votes were cast in the election.
Voters who are registered and reside at an address within the geographical boundaries of the Boswell School District are eligible to vote in the second election.
