Ballots are due Tuesday, July 25 in the special election for the Trustee Area 4 seat on Claremont Unified School District’s Board of Education.

Each of the candidates — Alex McDonald, Aaron Peterson and Joshua Rogers — have been profiled by the Courier over the past few weeks.

In-person voting at Condit Elementary School, 1750 N. Mountain Ave., Claremont, is available from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day through Monday, July 24, and from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Mail-in ballots can be dropped into boxes outside the Claremont Helen Renwick Library, 208 N. Harvard Ave.; Alexander Hughes Community Center, 1700 Danbury Rd.; La Verne City Hall, 3660 D St.; and the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder office, 12400 Imperial Hwy., Norwalk.

The July 25 special election was triggered by a successful petition drive by Rogers that forced Hilary LaConte, the board’s appointee to fill the Trustee Area 4 seat vacated by Steven Llanusa’s December 10, 2022 resignation, to step down.

The special election will cost Claremont taxpayers and CUSD an estimated $273,000.
