OKLAHOMA CITY — Rep. Chris Banning, R-Bixby, has filed legislation seeking to change the date of school board elections in Oklahoma.
House Bill 3563 would place school board members on the same cycle as House and Senate elections. It would also move three-year terms to two-year terms and five-year terms to four-year terms.
“Over the last decade, legislation similar to House Bill 3563 has been proposed,” Banning said. “This bill differs from others because of its simplified structure. The goal here is to consolidate elections to save taxpayers’ money and increase voter turnout.”
If signed into law, the bill would become effective Nov. 1.
