AS 14.08.071. Elections; Advisory Votes.

(a) In each regional educational attendance area in the unorganized borough, the lieutenant governor, within not less than 60, nor more than 90 days after the establishment of the regional educational attendance area, shall provide for the election of a regional school board.

(b) Except for the first election of regional school board members under (a) of this section, elections shall be held annually on the first Tuesday in October. Elections shall be supervised by the director of elections in the office of the lieutenant governor, but shall be administered within second class cities as part of the regular municipal election. The lieutenant governor shall adopt regulations for the conduct of the election of regional school board members comparable, as far as practicable, to those prescribed for election of school board members under AS 14.12 and AS 29.20.300 except that the majority election requirements of AS 29.26.060 do not apply to, nor may the regulations require runoff elections for, the first election of regional school board members under (a) of this section or, if a school board by resolution so requests, to subsequent elections in the regional educational attendance area served by that school board.

(c) The cost of each regional school board election, or recall election under AS 14.08.081 , shall be borne by the state.

(d) If a regional school board adopts a resolution requesting that an advisory question relating to education be placed on that regional school board's next election ballot, the division of elections shall place the advisory question on that regional school board's next election ballot. A resolution described in this subsection must be filed with the division of elections on or before the first Friday in August of the year in which the advisory question is required to be placed on the ballot. An advisory question authorized under this subsection may not consist of more than 100 words and shall be worded in a manner that allows the advisory question to be answered with a "yes" to favor the question or "no" to oppose the question.
