Rogers County Election Board

Candidates for the Board of Education in 14 Rogers County school districts and one Rogers County municipality will file Declarations of Candidacy beginning 8 a.m. Dec. 5.

Julie Dermody, Secretary of the Rogers County Election Board, said Declaration of Candidacy forms must be completed and submitted to the County Election Board no later than 5 p.m. Dec. 7 when the filing period ends.

Dermody reminds voters that Contests of Candidacy must be filed no later than Dec. 9 and may only be filed by another candidate for that office. Contests against unopposed candidates may be filed by contacting the County Election Board.

If more than two candidates file for the same vacant Board of Education position, a Primary Election will be held Tuesday, February 14th, 2023. If one candidate receives more than 50% of the votes, that candidate will be named the elected official. If no candidate receives more than 50% of the votes, the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes will vie for the vacant position during the Board of Education General Election, April 4th, 2023.

If only two candidates file for the same vacant Board of Education position, those two candidates’ names will appear on the General Election ballot in April.
