The two other four-year terms on the McKenzie County Public School District No. 1 school board have Pamela Ramage running unopposed to represent Area 1, which represents the city of Watford City, and Jake Pennington running unopposed to represent Area 4 & 5, which represents Grail, Twin Valley #5, Schafer #8, Little Mo. #13.
LaShell Tjelde and Cameron Wahlstrom will both be running unopposed to serve the two four-year terms on the Alexander Public School District No. 2 school board.
Yellowstone School District No. 14 will have three candidates - Doug Gullikson, Britt Poulsen and Harvey Asbeck - running unopposed for the three four-year terms on that school board.
