BULLHEAD CITY — All local school boards will have seats open in the November general election.
The Colorado River Union High School District governing board is due to elect three members, each for a four-year term.
Mohave Valley Elementary School District voters need to fill three seats, for two full four-year-terms and the last two years of another term. The Bullhead City Elementary School District governing board also has two full terms and a partial term to fill.
The Topock Elementary School District board will have two seats open for four-year-terms. The Western Arizona Vocational Education District will have a seat open for Colorado River Region No. 1.
Monday is the first day that interested candidates may pick up packets. Anyone seeking election must be a registered district voter and a resident for at least a year in the district in which he or she is campaigning. No one may serve on the board who has a direct household member working for that district.
The first day to file petitions is July 9, and the last day to file is Aug. 8.
Elections are nonpartisan, and any candidate seeking to be placed on the ballot will need to obtain a minimum number of signatures — 69 for the MVESD, 102 for the BHCESD or 178 for WAVE or the high school district. Candidates in Topock will need nine signatures to get on the ballot.
The election will take place Nov. 6.
