General Information for Candidates

Two Seats are up for election on the LTUSD School Board in November 2022 

The Lake Tahoe Unified School District is governed by five members of the Board of Education who serve staggered four-year terms. School board members are locally elected public officials entrusted with governing our community’s public schools.  

The Statewide General Election is on November 8, 2022. Two seats on the Board of Education will be up for election. The Board uses a voting system of “Elections by Trustee Areas” which means that Board members have specific geographic trustee areas in which they must live and are elected only by the residents of that area.

The incumbents, whose terms expire this year are as follows:

Trustee Area #2: Brandi Bannister, who has served since December, 2018 Trustee Area #5: Lauri Kemper, who has served since May, 2020

The filing period is July 18 – Aug. 12, 2020

To be eligible for election, Board candidates must be 18 years of age or older; a citizen of the state; a resident of the trustee area within the school district; a registered voter; and not disqualified by the constitution or laws of the State from holding a civil office.

It is vitally important that voters pay attention to the citizens they select to oversee their schools — the governing board members to whom they entrust their children and their tax dollars. It is equally important that school board candidates understand the depth of commitment required to effectively fulfill the school board role.
