Note regarding candidate phone numbers

Upon filing nomination papers, all candidates complete an affidavit of candidacy form.  This includes a space for the candidate's phone number with the notation "Optional, will be published."  If no phone number is listed for a candidate on this web site, the candidate left the phone number space blank on the affidavit of candidacy.

Note regarding candidate e-mail addresses and web sites

The affidavit of candidacy form also includes a space for the candidate to list an e-mail address.  To e-mail a candidate, replace the italic AT in the address with the @ sign.  (The @ has been replaced with AT on this web site to block address harvesting software used by spammers.)

If no e-mail address is listed for a candidate, the candidate left the e-mail address space blank on the affidavit of candidacy.

 

School Board Term Length

Thiswas the first school election where all terms were four years. Beginning this year, school elections will be held in odd-numbered years only. Through 2008, school elections were held every year. Terms were three years until 2007, and most terms in 2008 were also three years. (Clear Creek Amana elected the District 2 director to a one year term in 2008, to set up a cycle where two of the four district seats are on the ballot every two years.)

Terms for members elected to three year terms in 2007 were shortened or lengthened to accommodate the transition. Check individual school districts for details.

More information will be posted as Election Day approaches.
