The annual school board election for the Pulaski Special School District shall be held on the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November.

Individuals wishing to run for office in the election may begin circulating petitions to collect signatures one hundred twenty (120) days before the election.

Candidates may file their petition, affidavit of eligibility, and political practices pledge with the county clerk during a one-week period ending at 12:00 noon ninety (90) days before the election.

A copy of this policy will be provided annually to the county clerk by no later than the day the candidate filing period opens.

The Board will notify voters of the polling places and any changes in polling places since the last election through publication in a newspaper with general circulation in Pulaski County. The newspaper insertion will run not more than ten (10) days nor less than three (3) days prior to the school election. When a school board election is held and no candidate receives a majority of the votes cast for the position, a run-off election must be held four weeks following the general school election.
