Running for school board is a bit of different than running for other local offices. Campaign spending is generally less, and the time for campaigning is generally limited to a few weeks before election day.
Year after year, education is ranked as a top voter concern, yet voter turnout rates for school board elections remain low. One major reason for the low level of voter turnout is that school elections often occur on dates that differ from general elections. Some advocates have suggested combining school board, board of education and school budget elections with other local and state elections that generally have a higher turnout rate.
Because of the unique situation of these elections, the winner often becomes the person who can get more people to the polls. That requires getting your supporters motivated enough to go out on that odd day and actually cast a vote.
