Columbia County voters can elect the school board chairman for the first time this November.
Current board member Regina Buccafusco has qualified, and on June 27, newcomer Lawrence Hammond entered the race.
In the past, the board appointed one of its current members to serve as chairman, but voters decided on a referendum last year that it should be an elected position.
Candidates have until Friday, June 30 to qualify.
