A third election will be happening for residents in the Coon Rapids-Bayard School District to adopt a measure that would change the election of the Board of Directors from electing seven directors as residents of six director districts and one director at-large to a method in which all seven would be elected to serve at-large for the entire school district. Polls will be open for Bayard residents from noon until 8 p.m. at the Bayard Public Library.
