2020 HoCo BOE Election

Due to state legislation passed in 2018, the BOE election is changing. In 2020, BOE candidates will run from each district (the council district). There are five council districts ( Note the council district is quite different from where schools are located. Please check it here https://chaowu.org/hoco-district-map/) such that we will have one competition in each district.
