1 Under the new law, most local entities now have a “first day” to file. For the November 5, 2019 election, Monday, July 22, 2019, is the deadline to post notice of candidate filing deadline for local political subdivisions that do not have a first day to file for their candidates. (The 30th day before last day on which candidate may file falls on a Saturday, deadline moves to next business day.) Local political subdivisions include cities, school districts, water districts, hospital districts, and any other local government entity that conducts elections. Many of these elections are conducted on the May uniform election date. Note: Counties may also be holding local proposition (measure) elections on May 4, 2019.
2 Filing deadlines: generally, the filing deadline is the 78th day prior to Election Day. The Texas Election Code (the “Code”) may provide a different special election filing deadline. See Section 201.054 of the Code. Write-in deadlines: the deadline for most local (city, school, other) general elections is now the same day as the filing deadline for application for a place on the ballot in a May election or November election. NEW LAW: A declaration of write-in candidacy for special elections must be filed no later than the filing deadline for all candidates. House Bill 2323 (2017). Effective Date: September 1, 2017.
3If no candidate for a four-year term has filed an application for a place on the ballot for a city office, the filing deadline for that office is extended to 5 p.m. of the 57th day before the election. For the May 4, 2019 election, this is Friday, March 8, 2019. For the November 5, 2019 election, this is Monday, September 9, 2019. See Section 143.008 of the Code.
4The county elections officer may be the county clerk, the county tax assessor-collector (if commissioners court transfers election duties to him/her), or the county elections administrator (if commissioners court creates the position).
