Citizens in the Belton School District will not be able to vote for Board of Education members this year.
Only two candidates filed for two open seats on the board. According to Missouri State statute, when the number of candidates matches the number of vacant positions, no ballot is required. This law is intended to save money for the district, which otherwise would have to foot the bill for the election.
