Voting for Parent and Community Representatives
The following individuals are eligible to vote in a school's election for parent and community representatives:
  • Parents, legal guardians and temporary custodians of students enrolled in the school;
  • Persons at least 17 years old who reside within the school's attendance area or voting district.
 
Each eligible voter in the election for parent and community representatives shall be entitled to cast one (1) ballot and one (1) vote per candidate for up to, but no more than, any five (5) candidates in the election.

Casting more than five (5) valid votes will SPOIL the voter's ballot, while casting fewer than five (5) valid votes will not. Voters may cast only one (1) ballot for parent/community representatives at each school at which they are eligible to vote. To vote, voters must be present at the school and vote in person. There will be no absentee voting and no one may give his or her votes to a substitute or proxy. For example, a wife cannot vote twice, once for herself and once for her husband. In the event that a person with a disability who is eligible to vote cannot enter a school, election judges must provide a ballot at curbside. Additionally, any voter with a disability who requests assistance in voting shall be assisted by a judge or person of his or her choice after the voter and person assisting the voter to vote complete and sign an Affidavit of Assisted Voter (Form 13-22). No person who is otherwise eligible will be denied the opportunity to vote on the basis of a disability. Board of Education employees may vote in the parent and community representative election at any school their children attend and any school in whose attendance area or voting district they reside. 
 
Required Identification to Vote in the Parent/Community Election
To establish their eligibility to vote in a school's parent/community election, all voters must present at least two (2) current (unexpired) forms of identification which are determined to be reliable by the election judges

Community Voters
Community voters must present at least one (1) form of identification which bears the voter's current residential address within the school’s attendance area or voting district (for "multi-area" schools) and which may be from the list below. The second form of identification may also be from the list below or any other identification determined to
be reliable by the election judges.

Parent Voters
Parent voters must present at least one (1) form of identification or documentation which establishes that the voter is the parent, legal guardian or temporary custodian of a child enrolled in the school and which must be from the list below.
 
The second form of identification may be from the list of "Examples of Acceptable Forms of Identification" above, from the list below, or any other identification determined to be reliable by the election judges.

If the voter does not present a form of identification or documentation establishing that he or she is the parent, legal guardian or temporary custodian of a child enrolled in the school, the election judges shall examine the Student "Alpha List." If the Alpha List contains the voter's name, the judges shall allow the voter to vote as a parent. If the Student "Alpha List" does not contain the voter's name, the election judges shall, if feasible, request that the Principal or a designee verify that the voter is the parent, legal guardian or temporary custodian of a child enrolled in the school. If it is not feasible for the election judges to request such verification, the voter may do so. Upon verification of the voter's status by the Principal or a designee, the election judges shall allow the voter to vote as a parent.

If a parent voter does not present identification or documentation to establish that he or she is the parent, legal guardian or temporary custodian of child enrolled in the school and the voter's name does not appear in the Student Alpha List and the Principal or a designee does not verify the voter's status as a parent, legal guardian or temporary custodian of a child enrolled in the school, the judges shall allow the voter to vote as:
  • a community member if the voter presents two (2) reliable forms of identification
    and at least one (1) bears a residential address within the school's attendance
    area or voting district (for "multi-area" schools);
    - or - 
  • a Challenged Voter pursuant to the Challenged Voter Procedure, as described
    in the Judge of Election Manual.
