The deadline to file for a place on the ballot in the Perrin-Whitt CISD and the Jack County Hospital District board elections is Monday.
As of Thursday morning, the Perrin school board seats have a field of 10 candidates who have filed.
The Perrin-Whitt CISD Board of Trustees have five positions up for election and the Jack County Hospital District Board of Directors have one for the upcoming November 8 election.
For Perrin, the positions up are currently held by President Mike Withaeger, Vice President Shawn Parker, Tracy Lee, Chad Lambert and Mark Sims who was appointed to the board since the last election.
The positions are all for four-year terms with the exception of the one held by Sims. The individual elected will finish a previous term set to end in 2018. Two candidates have filed for that place, incumbent Sims and Teresa Price.
