“This ballot for the general election is the most complicated with the most number of candidates there is,” Bruns said.

She said some seats that are up for election will not have names next to the open seat on the ballot because no valid petitions were received.

Bruns also explained that although some schools that are not Miami County schools have seats or levies on the ballot, because some Miami County residents live in an area that are in other mostly located in other counties’ school districts, such as the Darke County ESC, as listed above.
