SMAC PTA legislative update
Make a plan to vote in the November 2nd local election!
These elections often have a bigger impact on our community and everyday lives than elections at the state and federal level.
What's On The Ballot?
School board, mayor, city council, water board and JCCC Board of Trustees will be on most ballots. In SMSD, we all vote for the at-large school board position, while voters in SME and SMW will also vote for school board representatives for their respective areas.
Local elections are non-partisan.
You can view a sample ballot from the Johnson County Election Office (click here) starting on October 13th.
Be An Informed Voter
There are a lot of great resources to learn about candidates, such as:
- Candidate websites or Facebook pages
- League of Women Voters website (Click here.)
- Candidate Questionnaires (See Shawnee Mission Post closer to the election)
- Candidate Forums
- Follow SMAC PTA on Facebook for notifications about upcoming school board forums
