The unexpired term for the Division 1 seat on the Hopkins County Board of Education has been placed on the ballot for the November 2018 election.
Anyone who is interested in filling the seat should file their candidacy with the Hopkins County Clerk’s Office prior to 4 p.m. on Aug. 14.
Because the timing of the vacancy falls so close to the filing deadline for the November election, the Kentucky Department of Education has advised that no action will be taken by the Interim Commissioner until after the filing deadline.
If no one files, the interim commissioner will proceed with the appointment process.
Division 1 includes the following precincts: White Plains 1, White Plains 2, Nortonville 3, Nortonville 4, St. Charles 5, Mortons Gap 6, Barnsley 7, Ilsley 40, and Earlington 15.
The vacancy was created by the resignation of board member Suzanne Duncan.
