The LeFlore County Election Board has announced that a Primary Election will be held for Board of Education Office No. 3 in Pocola School District on Tuesday, February 14, 2023. State law mandates a primary election be held if more than two candidates file for the same school board office.

The candidates are: Roger Lairamore, Josh Merritt and Michael E. Severe.

According to LeFlore County Election Board Secretary, Sharon Steele, if one candidate receives more than 50% of the votes, that candidate will be named the elected official. If no one receives more than 50% of the votes, the top two candidates will vie for the position in the April 4 Board of Education General Election.

Voters who are registered and reside at an address within the geographical boundaries of the Pocola School District are eligible to vote in both the Primary and Board of Education General Election.
