How is a School Board Election Conducted?
Annual school board elections are conducted by the county election board of the county in which the school district administration building is located.
The school board designates, by appropriate resolution the office or offices to be filled. The order in which these offices are set is specified by law.
The state election board provides the poll books and ballots. The school district reimburses the county election board for expenses incurred on the same basis as the charges prescribed by law for city elections.
School board elections are subject to state election laws. Questions about these laws should be directed to the county election board of the county in which the school district's administration building is located.
Candidates for school board elections must file the first week in December between the hours of 8:00 a.m. Monday through 5:00 p.m. Wednesday.
