Five more people declared candidacy when the filing deadline for school boards and local utility districts was extended.
The deadline to file papers for candidacy automatically extends when an incumbent chooses not to run. It was extended this year in some local elections from Aug. 10 to Aug. 15.
Miguel Miranda joined Helen M. Noriega, Robert Prior, Robert Hansen and incumbent Rodney Arterberry as candidates for two seats on the Brawley Union High School District board.
Jeff Zendejas, Michael Fong and Darik A. Erickson were added to the list of candidates with Thomas M. Everett and incumbents Mike Aleksick and Patty Dockstader for three seats on the Calipatria Unified School District board.
