There is no certified candidate running to represent District 2 on the Cumberland County Public School Board. Voters can still write in a candidate on their ballots, and the person with the most write in votes (assuming they are legally qualified to serve) will be asked to join the board. But if there is no qualified write-in winner, or the winner does not accept the position, the Board will make an appointment, according to the Code of Virginia.
