J.H. Snider writes about one of the more unfortunate acronyms in the electoral world: the Student Member of the Board (of Education) in some Maryland counties.

I’m only aware of a few scattered counties where students serve as full members of the board of education (often with some distinct electoral rules), but would eagerly welcome readers’ references to others.
