Skip image

Story image 1_0

In 2015, the Kansas Legislature passed HB 2104, changing local election dates, including the dates for local school board elections. Previously school board general elections were held in the spring of odd-numbered years. The new law requires these elections to be held on the Tuesday following the first Monday in November of odd-numbered years. If necessary, primary elections will be held on the first Tuesday in August of odd numbered years. That means 2017 is an election year for local boards of education in Kansas!

November Elections will be for the Following Positions:
Position #4—Currently held by LaVerne Clark

Position #5—Currently held by Tom Welsh

Position #6—Currently held by Sharon Sweeney

Filing and Election Dates

· Filing Deadline – Thursday, June 1, 2017

· Primary election – Tuesday, August 1, 2017

· General election – Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Terms of Office

· Term expiration dates for school board members scheduled to expire in 2017 under the old plan will now expire on the second Monday in January of 2018.
