The Forsyth County Republican Party has selected Susan Miller to replace Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Board of Education candidate Stan Elrod, who died last week.
Elrod was one of five candidates running in District 2, which accounts for four seats on the school board.
In a meeting on Oct. 31, the county GOP selected Miller, who had been a candidate in the primary, as his replacement.
She won 6,254 votes in the primary, but did not make it through to the general election. Elrod had been the second-highest vote getter in the primary for District 2 with 9,123 votes.
Elrod's name will continue to appear on the ballot, but any votes he receives will go to Miller.
According to her website, Miller worked in the school district for more than 20 years in a variety of roles including reading specialist, curriculum coordinator, and teacher.
Early voting will continue through Nov. 5, and Election Day is Nov. 8.
