The Student Member of the Board of Education election date has been changed due to the extended closure of Montgomery County Public Schools, according to MCPS.
The election was originally scheduled to take place in schools on April 22, 2020. As a result of the school closures, MCPS has developed two plans for the elections which will now take place on May 20. If students return to school in May, the election will be held on May 20 in person. Although, if the school closures are extended due to the coronavirus crisis, MCPS will hold a virtual election on May 20.
The candidates for the SMOB election are Nick Asante, a junior at Richard Montgomery High School, and Vicky Kidder, a junior at Magruder High School.
