Office of the Texas Secretary of State

2020 Board Member Election

School Board Election will be held
November 3, 2020
Deadline to file for a place on the ballot is August 17, 2020
 
Board Member Requirements are as followed:
 
Application
 
i. The candidate's name.
 
NOTE: An affidavit that any nickname provided for the name as it is to appear on the ballot is the nickname by which the candidate has been commonly known in the community for at least 3 years. [Sec. 52.031(c)].
 
NOTE: Secretary of State candidate forms already have the affidavit included.
ii. The candidate's occupation.
iii. The office sought, including any place number or other distinguishing number.
iv. An indication of whether the office sought is to be filled for a full or unexpired term if the office sought and another office to be voted on have the same title but do not have place numbers or other distinguishing numbers.
v. A statement that the candidate is a United States citizen.
vi. A statement that the candidate has not been finally determined mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote by a court with probate jurisdiction.
vii. A statement that the candidate has not been finally convicted of a felony from which the candidate has not been pardoned or otherwise released from the resulting disabilities.
viii. The candidate's date of birth.
ix. The candidate's residence address, or if the residence has no address, the address at which the candidate receives mail and a concise description of the location of the candidate's residence.
x. The candidate's length of continuous residence in the state and in the territory from which the office sought is elected as of the date that the candidate swears to the application.
xi. A statement swearing to defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and Texas.
xii. A statement that the candidate is aware of the nepotism law.
xiii. A public mailing address for campaign correspondence if available, and any available electronic mail address at which the candidate receives correspondence relating to the candidate’s campaign. (Sec. 141.031)
 
NEW LAW: Section 141.031 was amended to request a public mailing address at which the candidate receives correspondence relating to the candidate’s campaign, if available, and any available electronic mail address at which the candidate receives correspondence relating to the candidate’s campaign, if available. House Bill 1735 (2017). (NOTE: this codifies SOS interpretation.) Updated forms reflect this.
 
 
 
Additional Information on Official Application Form. [Sec. 141.039]
a. A space for indicating the form in which the candidate's name is to appear on the ballot.
b. A space for the candidate's mailing address.
c. Spaces for the candidate's home and office telephone numbers.
d. A statement informing the candidate that the furnishing of the telephone numbers is optional.
e. A space for e-mail address (optional).
NOTE: Most offices require voter registration in the territory from which the office is elected by the filing deadline. (See our online Terms, Qualifications, and Vacancies outline for general law cities and school districts.) However, the law does not require the voter registration number to be on the application form. (House Bill 484, effective September 1, 2015.) See our HB 484 FAQ (available online and in this seminar book).
 
NOTE: The new law does not apply to a member of the governing body of a district created under Section 52(b)(1) or (2), Article III, or Section 59, Article XVI, Texas Constitution.
 
 
 

Deadline for filing School Board General Election: an application for a place on the general election ballot must be filed not later than 5 p.m. of the 78th day before election day. [Education Code, Sec. 11.055]
