The Humboldt County Board of Education consists of five elected members. Each board member represents a trustee area that corresponds to a geographical region of the county. Trustees are elected only by voters residing within their respective trustee areas. After the decennial federal census, trustee areas may be reapportioned to assure that populations within the areas remain nearly equal.
