School Election

School elections are held in September to elect school board members and community college directors. Instructional support levy measures are often included in school elections. School board elections used to be held every year. School elections cannot be combined with any other type of election. Many voters have a different polling place for school elections than for all other elections.

Some school districts in Clayton County are primarily located in other counties. Elections for each district are administered by one county, called the "control county."
