The days are dwindling down in the nomination period for the Dracut Municipal Election but names are still being added to the May 3 ballot.

John Joyce, who has run unsuccessfully in the past, has taken out nomination papers for another run for a seat on the Board of Selectmen. He joins incumbent Joe DiRocco and challenger Philippe Thibault in what is shaping up as a three-way race for one three-year term.

A three-way race is also on tap for two three-year terms on the School Committee between incumbents Joseph Wilkie, Daniel O'Connell and challenger Susan Koufogazos.

There is also a contested race on tap for one seat on the Dracut Housing Authority between incumbent George Nangell and challenger Frederick Spicer.
