BOE filing deadline incorrect
Due to apparent confusion between state election officials and county clerk of courts offices across Indiana, the deadline for filing petitions of candidacy for local school board seats was incorrect as listed in this and other newspapers earlier this week.
The correct deadline for local school board candidates to submit their petitions to the Adams County Clerk of Courts office is noon Aug. 22, according to County Clerk Gayla Reinhart.
Reinhart said an election calendar originally provided by state election officials that listed the filing deadline as today apparently was in error. Forms taken out by candidates listed the deadline as Aug. 22, “and that’s what we’re going by,” Reinhart said Thursday.
