For the first time in Glendale’s history, Glendale Unified School District (GUSD) and the Glendale Community College District (GCCD) will hold elections for seats representing specific geographic areas. This by-district election model will take effect for the upcoming April 4, 2017 election.

This change only applies to GUSD and GCCD elections.

In order to keep the public up-to-date and involved in this change, the Glendale City Clerk, GUSD, and GCCD will be hosting a public town hall forum tomorrow, November 29, 2016. The meeting will take place in the Glendale Police Community Room located at 131 N. Isabel St, Glendale, CA 91206 and will begin at 6:00 PM.

Representatives from the Glendale City Clerk, GUSD, and GCCD will be there to discuss the boundaries for the GUSD and GCC Trustees, why the college and school district have moved to by-district elections, voting rights and compliance with federal and state law, demographics, voter turnout, and of course be on hand to answer questions and concerns from the public.
