Trustees Cancel 2018 Election
At the March 19, 2018 Regularly Scheduled Meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the Order of Cancellation for the May 5, 2018 election in accordance with Section 2.053(a) of the Texas Election Code, as each of the candidates for places 1, 2 and 3 have been certified as unopposed.
Texas state law provides that a political subdivision, such as an independent school district, may cancel a board of trustee election if:
Each candidate for an office that is to appear on the ballot in that territorial unit is unopposed and no at-large proposition or opposed at-large race is to appear on the ballot.
