Vote graphic

A special election will be held on Nov. 5 to fill the unexpired term of Ed Polhamus on the Danville School Board through June 30, 2020.

Danville Circuit Court issued a writ of special election after a petition was filed on Oct. 24. The seat became vacant upon the death of Polhamus on Oct. 13.

Polhamus was serving a four-year term.

Elizabeth Leggett is serving as an interim member replacing Polhamus until the special election is conducted. She was chosen last November by the School Board from among seven applicants.

For more information, call the Danville Registrar’s office at (434) 799-6560 or visit the office at 530 Main St., Suite 100.
