For the purpose of electing members to the Board, a qualified candidate must file a Nomination Paper/Affidavit of Qualifications, a candidate $500 threshold exemption statement, and nominating petitions, conforming to the provisions set forth in A.R.S. §16-314. The five Navajo County Community College Districts are the same as the supervisory districts and encompass the precincts so delineated therein; i.e., District #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5. The minimum number of signatures needed for the nominating petition is 1/2 of 1% of the currently registered voters in that district. Such nominating petitions shall be submitted to Navajo County Election Services no later than 5 p.m., not less than 90 nor more than 120 days prior to the General Election. The names of all persons whose petitions have been duly filed in compliance with state statutes will be listed upon the General Election ballot.
District Governing Board member terms are normally 6 years in length, and the individual district election terms are staggered.
