What local elections are happening this November?

Texas has a large number of political subdivisions, including 254 counties, over 1200 school districts, and over 1200 incorporated cities. With so many political subdivisions, there are a number local elections that voters will vote in. Below is a broad list of elections that will registered votes will vote in.

The purpose of this post to help voters be aware of what may potentially be on the ballot. Political subdivisions do not always line up with one another, meaning that your individual ballot may look different. For example, all registered voters who live in the City of Frisco will see the city elections on their ballot, but because the City of Frisco is in two different counties, voters will only vote for county elections in the county that they reside in.
