On November 8, voters will elect school board members in 80 school districts, and voters in House District 37 (Clay, Lowndes, and Oktibbeha counties) will choose a legislator to complete the term of Rep. Lynn Wright, who passed away in June.
We need your help to spread the word about where the candidates stand on important public education issues.
Special Election – House District 37
We sent special election candidates for House District 37 our Candidate Q&A questionnaire, asking their positions on issues like school funding, teacher pay, pre-k, and voucher schemes that take millions of dollars away from public schools to fund private academies. Visit our Elections web page to view the Q&A for House District 37.
School Board Elections
School board candidates in the 40 districts with contested races were sent our School Board Candidate Q&A questionnaire, asking their positions on important education issues. You can see their answers here.
If Your Candidates Haven’t Responded
When candidates don’t respond to our questionnaire, it sometimes means they don’t want you to know their positions on public education. But often it’s just an oversight. If candidates in your district haven’t responded, ask them to do so now. Send them the link to the appropriate questionnaire below, and encourage them to respond right away. We will get their answers posted as soon as we receive them.
