SECTION     2.     Notwithstanding another provision of law, beginning with the 2012 General Election, in order to qualify as a candidate for an even numbered election district seat on the Jasper County Board of Education, a person shall file a statement of candidacy with the county election commission no earlier than August first, or if August first falls on Sunday, no earlier than the following Monday, and no later than twelve o'clock noon on August fifteenth, or if August fifteenth falls on Sunday, no later than twelve o'clock noon on the following Monday. In 2014 the odd numbered election district seats on the Jasper County Board of Education shall offer for election by filing a statement of candidacy with the county election commission. The statement of candidacy must be a sworn statement and must include the candidate's name, age, voting precinct, and any other information the county election commission requires. A candidate for a single-member election district seat also shall indicate for which seat number he is filing. When more than one person is seeking election to a single seat on the Jasper County Board of Education, the candidate who receives the highest number of votes is declared the winner of the seat. The county registration and election commission shall conduct and supervise the elections for board members in the manner governed by the election laws of this State, mutatis mutandis.
