Tuesday is an election day for residents of three districts of Andalusia and one district of Opp, all of whom will elect members to their respective cities’ boards of education.

In Andalusia, there are seven candidates vying for three seats on the board.

In District 1, incumbent Joe Nix is challenged by Joe Armstrong.

In District 3, current board chairman David Bryant faces opposition from Bob Bush.

In District 5, David McCalman, Mark Dooley and Teresa Ward are seeking election to the seat currently held by LeeAnn Riley.

Voting will be at the Kiwanis Community Center.

In Opp, there are two candidates for the District 2 seat. Incumbent Jennifer Ferguson faces opposition from T.P. Morgan.

Earlier this month, the Opp City Council affirmed the election of Robert Young to the District 1 seat and William Hines to the District 4 seat. Neither had opposition.

District 2 residents will vote at the Opp Senior Center on Brantley Street.
