Apologies for not posting this sooner- I hope it still helps some individuals. Joy Clendenning needs credit for creating this clear and concise information sheet on the elections. Please note that parents and community members can vote for both parent candidates and community candidates at any school in whose boundaries you live. Only 5 votes per ballot- mix and match how you like between parents and community candidates.
And spread the word to others to vote!!
