LISD Has New System for Electing At Large Members

The Lubbock Independent School District's Board has approved changes on how you vote for at large members.

LISD Superintendent Wayne Havens says "one of the at large positions will be for two years and one will be for four. So whoever is elected to the two year term will have to run again two years from that time for a four year term."

In 2010, voters will clearly see they need to elect two at large candidates. In the past, confusion led some voters to only pick one candidate. And changing their length of service means from that point on the at large members terms will be staggered. School board leaders hope staggering the terms will fix the problem. Now, the ballot change must await approval by the U.S. Department of Justice.
