The deadline to file paperwork to run for a seat on the Kuna school board is 5 p.m. Friday, March 18.
Three seats will be up for election this year. The election will be held on Tuesday, May 17.
The three seats that are up for election are:
• Zone 1, currently held by Ginny Greger.
• Zone 2, currently held by Dave Case.
• Zone 5, currently held by Carl Ericson.
To be a candidate for school board trustee, you must have been a resident of the trustee zone you are filing candidacy for, for at least 30 days prior to filing a declaration of candidacy.
The declaration of candidacy must be notarized and accompanied by a petition signed by no fewer than five qualified electors of the trustee zone. The petition needs to have the names clearly printed and a complete physical address as well as a signature of the patron signing. Prospective candidates should get a few extra signatures in case some of the signers are not registered voters in the zone.
Both the petition for candidacy and the declaration of candidacy need to be filed with the Clerk of the School Board no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, March 18.
