If voters approve a return to an elected school board, candidates will appear on the November bal- lot, with a declaration period on Aug. 22 and 23. "Hopefully there won't be a pri- mary, but if there's one, it's going to be Oct. 2," said Corriveau, noting a primary will be scheduled if more than 10 candidates declare. Corriveau said she expects approximately 2,000 voters to turn out for the referendum, though the number may be fewer due to vaca- tion schedules. Voters may request an absentee mail ballot and submit an application for a regular mail ballot at any time.
