The requirement for obtaining signatures on a candidate petition is waived for the June 9th election. Instead, individuals declare themselves to be a candidate for the board of education, provided that they meet all other legal requirements to be a candidate. Remember, sufficient information must be included for the District Clerk to verify that the candidate is otherwise qualified to run for the board.

There is no change in the time frame for submission of a candidate petition. Therefore, candidate petitions/declarations are due 30 days prior to the election, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, May 11, 2020
