Regional Educational Attendance Area (REAA) Candidates

To file for a vacant REAA seat, a candidate must be registered and reside within the boundaries of the REAA assigned to that seat. In addition, when the REAA nominates candidates by section, a candidate must reside within the boundaries of the REAA and within the boundaries of the section in the REAA assigned to that seat.

Candidates who wish to file as a write-in candidate must follow the procedures outlined in AAC 27.036.

Each term of office is for three years. If a board member resigns before their term is up, and the Division of Elections is notified by July 15, that seat will be on the ballot of the election held that year. If a board member resigns after July 15, another person is appointed by the board to serve until the following regular election. The seat is listed on the next appropriate ballot and a candidate is then voted on to complete the term of office.
