Darin Redd, an incumbent, and Andrew Lehenbauer are the only two who filed for the Palmyra R-I School Board,  and Jared T. Stewart, an incumbent, and Joel Swisher, filed for Marion County R-II School Board.

The school board candidates will not appear on the April 6 ballot since there are no races.

There was one filing reported for Marion County Public Water Supply District No. 1 Board of Directors,

Mark Lovelace, the incumbent, filed to continue representing Sub-District No. 3.
