Three candidates for school board seats were disqualified Thursday from running in the Nov. 5 election by the Mahoning County Board of Elections.

Former Jackson-Milton school board candidate Tom Huff was disqualified for failing to list the number of signatures on his petitions. Five candidates for school board seats are still eligible for the three seats.

Youngstown School Board candidate Tiffany Harris and Western Reserve school board candidate Mark Hall both failed to have enough signatures to qualify them to be placed on the ballot.

The elections board made the findings at their Thursday meeting.

The board also said they plan to test an electronic poll book in November. The technology allows election officials to pull up a voter’s information by entering their name or scanning their identification card.

The process takes about 30 seconds compared with two to three minutes.

Currently 12 counties have the E-Poll book. The board said they will hold a mock election to determine if the equipment is worth leasing.
