Board of Trustee Election Postponed
Posted on 03/24/2020

Heeding the encouragement of Governor Greg Abbott, the Grapevine-Colleyville ISD Board of Trustees has voted to postpone its next Board of Trustee election until November 3, 2020. The election, originally scheduled for May 2, 2020, is for the purpose of electing a Trustee for Place 5, Place 6 and Place 7.

In the wake of Texas’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Abbott signed a proclamation allowing political subdivisions to postpone their 2020 local elections.

"I strongly encourage local election officials to take advantage of these waivers and postpone their elections until November," said Governor Abbott. "Right now, the state's focus is responding to COVID-19 — including social distancing and avoiding large gatherings. By delaying this election, our local election officials can assist in that effort."

According to guidance from the Secretary of State, the District will preserve all candidate filings and ballot order actions that have already been taken. The postponement does not allow for the reopening candidate filings. Deadlines related to Candidate Filings, Declarations of Ineligibility, etc. that apply to the November 3, 2020 election would apply to all candidates who are currently on the ballot for the May 2, 2020 election.

Also, this postponement will not affect the District’s election schedule in future years.

For more information on details surrounding the postponement, please view the election advisory provided by Texas Secretary of State Ruth Hughs.
