The Westminster School District is in the process of changing the method by which Governing Board Members are elected. Under the current “at-large” system, all registered voters in the District can vote for any of the candidates up for election. Under the new proposed system, candidates will be elected by “trustee areas.” This means only voters within a given trustee area can vote for candidates who reside within the same area. The intent of this proposed system is to offer greater opportunities for Board representation for candidates that might not otherwise be elected under an at-large system.
