Incumbents in three of four board of education races could learn if they will serve another term in the July 31 primary elections.

One race will not be decided until the November general election.

Incumbent Venus Holmes, a candidate for District 5 and the only Democrat in all board of education races, will have to wait until November to learn if she will serve on the board again.

Republican Dee Rogers is hoping to unseat Holmes, who has served on the board for nearly a decade.

In the race for District 3, Republican Noel Jensen will seek to take over the seat held by Republican incumbent John Madala since 2008.

The situation is similar for the at-large post 2 seat.

Republican incumbent Jerry Mancil, current chairman of the board, is facing opposition from two candidates, Republicans L.A. Chancey and Larry Lynch, who are hungry to serve on the board.

Republican incumbent Ray Snow will also have to beat two other candidates to keep his seat representing District 1.

Republicans Ingrid Metz and Earl Perry are Snow's opponents.
