Filing for Polk County Board of Education seats began this week, contrary to earlier reports that it would not begin until June.

The seats of Rick Covil (Tryon Township), Melanie Talbot (Saluda Township) and Cindy Allen (White Oak Township) are all open this year.
Filing ends on Feb. 29 at noon.
Filing for all Polk County positions can be done at the Polk County Board of Elections Office, located on the second floor of the Womack building in Columbus.
