ABERDEEN, S.D. | Aberdeen officials say a school board election that was forced to be rescheduled after the district made a mistake could cost the city up to $10,000.

The election was moved after it was revealed that the district did not publish a notice of vacancies, as required by state law.

The voting was originally scheduled at the same time as other city, county and school district elections, which allows the agencies to split up the costs.

Linda Burdette, the current board vice president who is running for re-election, tells the Aberdeen American News (http://bit.ly/11OcoXR) that the board has asked the administration to put in safeguards to prevent the situation from happening again.

The special election is scheduled Tuesday.
