• LUHSD SCHOOL BOARD "BY-TRUSTEE AREA" ELECTION SYSTEM

    On Wednesday, October 23, 2019, the Board of Trustees of the Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) approved a Resolution No. 2019-20 affirming their intention to transition from at-large to a by-trustee area election system. Public hearings inviting the public to provide input are listed below.

    The Liberty Union High School District’s five (5) board members are elected by all of the voters in the district.  This is known as an ‘at-large’ election.  When there are multiple board seats up for election, voters choose multiple candidates from those who are running when they complete their ballot.

    When elections are held through ‘by-trustee areas’, the district is divided into smaller areas and candidates for the board seat representing that district area must reside in that specific district area.  Voters select one candidate from those who are running to represent their area of the district and do not vote on the seats representing other areas of the district. A “by-trustee area” election, wherein one candidate residing in each trustee area is elected by only the registered voters in that particular trustee area, ensures compliance with the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA).
