By-Trustee Area Election System


Overview


The Davis Joint Unified School District (DJUSD) currently elects its Board of Education members through an at-large election system. Under this system, candidates for the Board of Education can reside anywhere in DJUSD's area of service and are elected by the registered voters that reside within DJUSD's area of service.

On May 16, 2019, the DJUSD Board of Education adopted Resolution No. 41-19 Resolution Initiating Process of Establishing Trustee Areas and Elections By-Trustee Areas.

Pursuant to Election Code Section 10010, DJUSD is conducting a series of public hearings to receive community input on the composition of proposed election geographic areas for Board of Education seats. It is of the utmost importance that residents participate and provide feedback during the upcoming public hearings. It is the District’s desire to ensure that the proposed By-Trustee Areas reflect communities of interest and that the community is involved in this process.
