The Kentucky Department of Education has corrected information given out about the possibility of a write-in candidate for the Elizabethtown Independent Schools board seat for which no one has filed. 

In the case of a seat for which there are no candidates, no one is allowed to file as a write-in candidate, said Lisa Gross, the KDE director of the division of communications and community engagement. Gross had previously said this could be a possibility.

KDE Commissioner Terry Holliday will select someone to fill the seat, and the process of finding a board member will begin now, instead of after the elections.
