JACKSON- Gov. Phil Bryant today issued writs of election, setting the dates for special elections to elect Canton’s alderman for Ward 1 and to elect boards of trustees for the new North Bolivar and West Bolivar School Districts.
The Canton election date is set for Aug. 13.
The elections for new trustees for the North Bolivar and West Bolivar School Districts are set for Nov. 5. The qualifying deadline for school board is Sept. 6. If no candidate receives a majority of votes cast in any of the special elections, a runoff election will be held Nov. 26. These elections are the result of legislation enacted during the 2012 legislative session that consolidated four Bolivar County school districts into two new districts.
