FAIRFIELD — Requests by five local school boards to switch from odd-year elections to even-year elections have the county’s blessing.
The Solano County Board of Supervisors has approval power over requests to change election years. On Tuesday, it voted in favor of requests by the Fairfield-Suisun, Vacaville, Benicia and Vallejo school districts and the county Office of Education.
However, the board doesn’t have full discretion over such requests. A county report said the board must grant them unless it finds that the county’s ballot style, voting equipment or computer capacity cannot handle additional elections or materials.
