More now allowed to vote in DSFM school board election

More francophone Manitobans will be allowed to vote in the upcoming 2014 Division scolaire franco-manitobaine (DSFM) school board election this fall, the province said yesterday.

The DSFM list of eligible electors will be expanded to include DSFM graduates who are at least 18 years of age and their parents or legal guardians, DSFM students who are at least 18 years of age and their parents or legal guardians and the parents or guardians of children attending pre-kindergarten in DSFM.

“The expansion of the electoral list will more than double the number of voters eligible to elect school trustees regardless of where they live in the province,” Premier Greg Selinger, minister responsible for francophone affairs, said in a statement.

“The changes open the door to new participants in the electoral process and, as a result, greater involvement in school board elections by the members of the DSFM’s school community.”

In Westman, there are DSFM schools in Shilo (École la Source), St. Lazare (École Saint-Lazare) and Laurier (École Jours de Plaine).
