Transition to a By-Trustee Area Elections

Board members of the Fruitvale School District were previously elected “at-large,” meaning that candidates were required to reside within given areas of the county and the voters of the entire county elected the candidates to the Board. A “by-trustee area” election, wherein one candidate residing in each trustee area is elected by only the registered voters in that particular trustee area, ensures compliance with the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA). The Board recently moved to a “by-trustee area” electoral system, scheduled to begin with the 2022 Board election. Please see relevant information below.
