2021 PRIMARY ELECTIONS
The primary election is being held for the Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 race because of the number of candidates. State law says a primary election is to be held if the number of candidates exceeds three times the number of open positions plus one.
There are currently 3 open seats on the school board and 10 candidates which means that state requirements for a primary election are met.
The primary election will serve to reduce the number of candidates from 10 to 6.
