Information about Board of Director Elections will be posted to this page.

We have a three member, At-Large Board. Each position comes with a three year term, unless we have an early position vacancy, and the terms are staggered such that we hold an election every year. Nomination Petition Form availability and timelines are publically announced per Oregon Revised Statute guidelines. There is no limit to how many terms a board member may serve. Being on the Board is a serious commitment and it is recommended that those interested in running for the Board attend and participate in several board meetings in order to learn about the legal requirements and business operations and affairs of the District.
