Peers of students from across the Montgomery County school district elected the 2012 Student Board seat using online election software eBallot by Votenet Solutions. The annual race features ambitious high school students vying for election to a student seat on the county board of education.

Any Montgomery County student who is a resident of the county and in his/her junior or senior year is eligible to be on the ballot. In the election, over 64,000 students from 19 high schools and 24 middle schools cast their vote for a student representative to the board. The 2012 election took place April 25, 2012.
