Petitions began circulating Tuesday for Massac County’s spring 2021 election.

Offices on next year’s ballot are:

• Massac Unit 1 school board: Four seats are up for election.

• Joppa-Maple Grove school board.

• City of Metropolis: Along with the office of mayor, four city council positions and the office of city clerk are up for election.

Dec. 14 is the first day to file petitions with Dec. 21 being the last.

The spring 2021 election will be held April 6, 2021.
