The consolidated election takes place Tuesday, April 4. Seven candidates are vying for two seats on the board, each of which carry six-year terms. Candidates will appear on the ballot in the following order:

JJC is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees, all of whom are elected from within the seven-county college district for at-large, staggered, six-year terms. A student representative, appointed annually, is a non-voting member of the board. Residents are asked to select no more than two candidates when marking their ballot.
