SBDM Election Update

After much research, consideration and discussion, we moved to an online voting system to elect our SBDM parent representative, in order 1) to encourage stronger participation by providing a more convenient method, since we had almost no voters physically showing up in person to vote with the paper ballot system in prior years, and 2) to be more eco-friendly.
