RELATING TO SCHOOL BOARD ELECTIONS

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 3, TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO SCHOOL BOARD ELECTIONS.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Delaware:

Section 1. That § 309 (b) Title 14 of the Delaware Code is hereby amended to read as follows:

§ 309 (b). All the schools in each district shall be open as polling places for their respective districts and voting facilities shall be made available at all schools.

Section 2. § 310, Title 14 of the Delaware Code is hereby repealed and the following new Section to be known as § 310 is substituted and enacted in lieu thereof:

§ 310. The annual school election in each District shall be conducted by the members of the School Board of the District. One member of the School Board shall serve together with two other persons chosen by the School Board as election officers in each school in the District. Where there are more schools in a District than there are School Board members the School Board shall appoint as many additional election officers as shall be necessary so as to man every school in the District with three election officers. If for any reason, one or more members of the School Board are unable to serve as election officers, the School Board shall designate another person, or persons to sit in such capacity. Should the School Board fail or neglect to provide election officers at the election, the voters present, when the polls open, shall designate and appoint election officers to conduct the election.
