Two Lincolnville residents are running in a special election for an opening on the Board of Selectmen.

The seat to be filled was held by Selectman David Barrows, who died in a tractor accident Sept. 13.

Jordan Barnett-Parker and Jason Trundy returned nomination papers by the Nov. 5 deadline. On Sept. 21, the Board of Selectmen voted to shorten the time period for filling out the nomination papers, which became available Sept. 28.

The special election will be held Dec. 15 for the vote to fill the position.
