To appear on the ballot for a California school board position, follow these three steps. 1) Contact the county elections office that the school district is located in to verify that your address qualifies for the position you are seeking. For the majority of California school boards, the county elections office is the election administrator and will be where candidates pickup and submit filing papers to. 2) Arrange to pickup filing papers from the elections office. This is also an excellent time to ask to speak with someone if you are a first time candidate and have questions regarding the filing paperwork. 3) Collect the necessary signatures during the filing period and submit the necessary filing papers prior to the deadline. The filing window for most California school board positions is 113 to 88 days before the election is held. If you have completed the paperwork and submit within the filing window, you will appear on the ballot. Submitting paperwork after the deadline will prevent you from appearing on the ballot. If there are any other questions regarding this position, contact the county elections office indicated below.
