Elections will be the main topic of discussion when Big Spring Independent School District trustees hold their regular monthly meeting at 5:15 p.m. Thursday in the high school board room.
The board will consider approval of a resolution which would allow trustees to be elected by a simple plurality of votes. Currently, trustees must be elected by a majority of votes, even if that means holding runoff elections.
