Filing deadline extended for Aurora Board of Commissioners race

The filing period for the two seats up for election on the Aurora Board of Commissioners has been extended because not enough candidates filed within the original time frame. The filing period for that race will now end at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 23. Incumbent Jeff Peed is the only candidate who had filed for the Aurora election as of last Friday.

The Aurora Board of Commissioners race is the only one that was extended beyond last Friday, July 16, the filing deadline for all municipalities except Belhaven. Belhaven’s filing period starts at noon on July 26 and ends at noon on Aug. 13.
