The only board seat already decided after the end of qualifying is the District 3 seat, because incumbent Zach Holmes, who qualified Friday, won’t face any opposition.
Since seats on the Board of Education are nonpartisan, there will be no primary election. The BOE races will be on the ballot during the general election Nov. 2.
In District 1, three people qualified. Aside from incumbent and current Board of Education Chairwoman Fannie Delaney, who qualified Tuesday, the other two candidates who will appear on the ballot in November are local attorney Michael Kendall and Freddie Phillips, chief executive officer of the Faith Community Development Center in Griffin.
If none of the three candidates in District 1 can capture more than half of all votes cast, a runoff election will take place on Nov. 30.
The final board seat to be included in the November election is in District 5. Incumbent James “Pete” Graham qualified Friday and faces opposition from Syntel Brown, a press assistant.
BOE seats have four-year terms.
