The elections were announced at Tuesday's board meeting in Sacramento.
Board members are appointed to 10-year terms by the governor. The Senate must approve appointees within one year for them to hold the office.
The board is confronting a couple of vacancies. Anne Sheehan's term ended last year, but she was allowed to continue serving pending a replacement. Former GOP Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed his former chief of staff, Will Fox, to the board's fifth seat in 2010, but the Senate didn't confirm him.
California's constitution mandates that the board administers the state civil service and merit system. SPB also oversees state recruiting and hiring and resolves discrimination, whistleblower complaints and disciplinary actions against state employees.
Gov. Jerry Brown's administration is merging the non-constitutional functions of SPB with the Department of Personnel Administration to form a new California Department of Human Resources. The merger takes effect July 1.
Jan. 5 editor's note: A previous version of this post incorrectly stated the expiration of Anne Sheehan's term on the board.
