Upcoming Elections

Where can I find information about important dates, forums, and VOTERS GUIDES?

The League of Women Voters of Richardson makes every effort to inform citizens about elections through VOTERS GUIDES and candidate forums. We are able to do this thanks to the community's generous support of the League of Women Voters of Texas Education Fund - Richardson Account. To make a donation to this fund, click here.

May 4, 2019, Local Election

This is the date on which several local elections will be held.

  • The Richardson Mayoral and City Council election (all seven seats)

  • Dallas County Community College District bond election (LWV-Dallas will be covering this election)

  • The Plano ISD Board of Trustees election (Places 4, 5, 6 [unexpired term] and 7)

  • Collin County Community College District, Places 2, 4, 5 and 6 (LWV-Collin County will be covering both of these last two elections)

RISD Board of Trustees election

The RISD Board of Trustees has settled the lawsuit brought by former Trustee David Tyson. As part of this settlement, five of the seven places on the Board of Trustees will become single-member districts, in which only the residents of each district vote for that place on the board.

In order to give the school district time to create a plan to implement the changes to the board's structure, the federal court has approved moving the 2019 RISD election for Places 3, 4, and 5 from May to November.
