School board approves resolution on primary election

The New Prague Area School Board approved a resolution requiring a primary election if more than seven candidates file for school board seats this fall.

The filing period begins Tuesday for three seats on the seven-member board. A new state law requires the district to hold a special election if more than two candidates apply for each open seat.

The primary election would be held September 13, with voters choosing up to three candidates. The top six vote getters would be on the November 8 ballot.
