An unprecedented 86 candidates are running. A university spokeswoman says a ballot and links to candidate biographies and position statements are now available on an election voting website.
Voting will run through 9 a.m. on May 3, with results to be announced at the trustees meeting the following day.
Some former players and vocal alumni groups angered by the board's ouster of the late Joe Paterno as head coach in November are calling the election a vehicle for change.
