There's only about a week left to participate in the May 21 election, which includes two seats on the Baker 5J School Board.
As of this morning, 12.5 percent of the ballots had been returned, said Baker County Clerk Tami Green.
That figure didn't include ballots that had been returned over the weekend.
The clerk's office mailed ballots to the 8,436 voters in the school district, which includes Baker City as well as much of Baker Valley, Keating and the Sumpter area.
Kevin Cassidy and Mike Ogan are campaigning for Position 3; Rosemary Abell, Richard McKim, Karen Spencer and Rick Stout are competing for Position 4.
