HB 88 – Provisional School Board Candidates

Last session, the General Assembly passed a bill that required the Commissioner of Elections to determine whether a school board candidate had any disqualifying convictions.

Apparently this has led to some delays and issues with candidates filing near the filing deadline, leaving little time for the Commissioner of Elections to complete the required investigation.

So House Bill 88 has been introduced, and will be considered by the House today, to provide a solution. This bill provides that any individual who meets the filing deadline for candidates for a school board election are provisional candidates until the Commissioner determines if the individual is eligible to be a candidate and requires the Commissioner to disclose the names of provisional candidates to the public.
