    If you are undecided as a voter, please wait until election day. That is the deadline that undecideds have until. Or, request an absentee ballot, just get it on on time.

    Please remember that because Board of Education is non-partisan, all offices should be non-partisan. The difference between being a Republican or a Democrat is the ballot, and nothing else. Rs get their ballot and Ds get their ballot.
