The January 2 deadline has passed to file nomination papers to run for town-wide office in this upcoming April's annual Town Election, and as has been the case in recent years, many of the races will be uncontested.
Four candidates will be vying for two seats on the Stoughton School Committee in this April's Town Election.
No other town-wide race will be contested.
Incumbents John Stagnone (Selectmen) and Tom Colburn (School Committee) will not seek reelection.
