BOSWELL — Boswell voters will return to the polls Tuesday to vote in the school board run off election.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 6.
State law requires a runoff election if no candidate in the regular annual school election receives more than 50% of the total votes casts.
Candidates John Kerr and Robbie Chandler, who received the highest number of votes in the Feb. 9 election, will be on the ballot Tuesday.
Kerr received 117 votes and Chandler 82 in the last election. Other candidates, Clint Pierce received 69 votes and Ron Pickard received 40.
Voting locations are the Boswell Facility Building on Eighth Street and the Bluff Community Center.
Darlene Rickman, secretary of the Choctaw County Election Board, said mid-morning and mid-afternoon are the most likely times to get through the line quickly on election day.
She also urged voters to bring their voter identification cards with them to the polls.
