Voting in a school board election is a bit different from other elections.

First, in Christina, candidates file from a nominating district which is a specific geographic and population area to ensure representation on the board from across the district. Susan filed for Nominating District G; however, she is running "at-large" which means ALL eligible residents of Christina can vote.

Second, you don't need to be registered to vote, but you must be

  • 18 years old or older

  • a US citizen

  • a resident living within the boundaries of the school district

  • able to provide proof of identity & residence

        DE driver's license

        DE ID card

        Work ID with photo and home address OR

        US postal material with your name and address

Third, you may vote at any polling place; these may not be the same polling places you use in other elections. For the election on May 11, 2021, you may vote at any of the polling places listed below from 7:00 a.m. to 8 :00 p.m.
