There is a third candidate in the race, Lynne Hardin, so even if Muhammad were struck from the ballot there would still be an election on Feb. 12.
In other board races
Two candidates also withdrew from school board races Friday.
Joe Rockett, who was the third candidate in the race for Oklahoma City School Board Office 1, withdrew as a candidate. The race will now be between Bob Hammack and E. Jann Maultsby. The seat is held now by board member Lyn Watson, but she is not seeking re-election.
In addition, the only candidate opposing Putnam City School Board member Rebecca Haliburton in that district's Office 3 race has withdrawn his name from candidacy. Gregory Clyde will not appear on the ballot, meaning Haliburton will keep the seat.
