In a community college district that includes the trustee areas authorized to be established pursuant to the third paragraph of Section 72023 of the Education Code, the consolidation of the election of trustees on the same date as the statewide general election pursuant to Section 10405.7 may be approved by any county or counties for the trustee areas located entirely within that county or counties. The approval of any county or counties in which the other trustee areas are located shall not be required. Elections resulting from changes in election dates pursuant to this section shall be deemed to meet the requirement of staggered terms set forth in Section 72023 of the Education Code.
