Place 5 would not typically be up for election this year. However, the race will appear on the November ballot because Fashokun was appointed to Place 5 in October 2021 following the resignation of former Trustee Jim MacKay.
All seats on the LISD board of trustees are at large, meaning each trustee represents the entire school district, and voters in the school district can cast a ballot in each race.
Early voting will run from Oct. 24-Nov. 4, and Election Day is Nov. 8.
