SECTION    2.    Notwithstanding another provision of law, beginning with the 2016 General Election, in order to qualify as a candidate for an odd numbered election district seat on the Jasper County Board of Education, a person shall file a statement of candidacy with the county board of elections and voter registration 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 2018 the even numbered election district seats on the Jasper County Board of Education shall offer for election by filing a statement of candidacy with the county board of elections and voter registration. 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 board of elections and voter registration requires.

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 board of elections and voter registration shall conduct and supervise the elections for board members in the manner governed by the election laws of this State, mutatis mutandis.

SECTION    3.    This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
