have until April 21st to become a registered voter. There are
several ways to register to vote, making it even easier than before.
in May will vote for basically a new school board. Voters will vote for
candidates representing the 5 school board districts that mirror those of the
Board of Commissioners. In addition to voting on a new district representative,
voters will also cast ballots for a 2-year at-large candidate AND a 4-year at-large candidate. This simply
means that each voter in May will actually be voting for THREE school board
candidates—your district candidate, a 2-year at-large candidate and a 4-year
at-large candidate. While most of the current Board of Education will be
seeking seats in the new district configuration, there are some new names that
qualified as well. Become an informed voter by attending candidate forums when
available and by attending the school board meetings. There will be three
meetings to attend before voting in May; tonight’s regular meeting, the work
session in May and the monthly regular meeting in May. School board candidates
have been attending these meetings since qualifying ended and you can meet
perhaps your district candidate and ask questions when you can.
