There is one At – Large Trustee position available on the Board. The candidates may come from any of the three districts. The candidate with the most votes will become the At-Large Trustee from their district. The At-Large Trustee is elected after all other candidates are selected from a county not serving on the board. Subject to Change, the following counties would be first eligible to present candidates: Atlantic, Camden, Gloucester, Hudson, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, Salem, Somerset, Sussex and Warren as these counties are currently not represented on the Board.
In 2020, the At-Large Trustee will be selected from the remaining two districts and in 2021, the final district. However, if there are no candidates from unrepresented counties, then the at-large position may be occupied by any properly vetted candidate from the district. If there is no properly vetted candidate from the district, then the at-large position may be occupied by a properly vetted candidate from the state.
