"For the election of governing board members of the Ohlone CommunityCollege District, shall members residing in each trustee area be elected by the registered voters in that trustee area? YES NO

Impartial Analysis
The measure comes to the ballot as a result of actions taken by the Alameda County Board of Education, which is also the Alameda County Committee on School District Organization.

Currently, the District's governing board elections are "at-large," meaning that all registered voters of the District vote for all candidates of the District's governing board. The District is comprised of two trustee areas. Area 1 represents the City of Newark, as well as the Fremont and Union City precincts west of I-880. Area 2 represents the Fremont and Union City precincts east of I-880.

This measure seeks voter approval to change the elections from "at-large" to "by-area." Under the "by-area" election, only the registered voters of Area 1 will vote for candidates residing in Area 1. Only registered voters of Area 2 will vote for candidates residing in Area 2.

If a majority of the qualified electors voting on this measure vote for approval, the measure will become effective November 2014. A majority "no" vote on the measure will maintain the "at-large" elections for the District's governing board.
