The Board of Education of Edmond Public Schools hereby announces that statutorily qualified individuals interested in running as a candidate for the #5 and #2 seats on the Edmond Board of Education may file to run as a candidate at the Oklahoma County Election Board, 4201 N. Lincoln Boulevard, from 8 a.m. to close of business December 6-8, 2021.  The election is on April 5. If three or more candidates file for each seat, a primary election will be held on February 8, 2022.  If a primary is needed and one candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, that person will be elected to the office without a need for the April election.
