LEAD — Two Lead-Deadwood School Board seats are open for the upcoming April 12 election, which will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. that day.

Vacancies will be created by the expiration of seats currently held by Amber Vogt and Tessa Allen.

Both are three-year terms.

Vogt said Tuesday she would seek re-election
