The general elections for the city of Conroe, Texas, are held on the first Saturday of May each year. Locations may vary as the county's precincts are consolidated. The election day schedule begins at 7 a.m. Documents related to the elections will be posted closer to the date.
In accordance with Chapter 127, Subchapter D of the Texas Election Code, electoral district tabulators must be tested to ensure accuracy. The uniform election date in May of an odd-numbered year is when many local political subdivisions, such as cities, school districts and water districts, hold their periodic general elections or special elections to fill vacancies. Special elections for a political subdivision are considered separate from general elections for officials from the same political subdivision held at the same time. If the location of a voting center changes after being notified under Section 4.003 of the Texas Election Code, and the county election official maintains a website to inform voters about the elections, then notice of the change must be posted on the website.
The trustee for municipal elections is typically the chief of police or municipal sheriff. For an election ordered by an authority of a political subdivision other than a county or city, it is usually the police officer of the judicial precinct in which the main office of the governing body of the political subdivision is located (or sheriff if there is no police officer). For an election ordered by the governor or a county authority, it is typically the sheriff. The first day of the period during which notice of elections must be published in a newspaper of general circulation if a law outside the Texas Election Code does not specify another notification method is also specified.
The governing body of a political subdivision other than a county must establish electoral precincts for elections ordered by an authority of that political subdivision and follow requirements set forth in Secs. The recommended date for county election officials and local political subdivisions to meet and discuss holding elections at the same voting centers in accordance with Section 42.002, as well as any applicable joint election issues that must be agreed upon, is also specified. If any member of a governing body of a political subdivision is elected from territorial units such as one-person districts, then an election in that particular territorial unit will be canceled if each candidate for office who is going to appear on its ballot is not opposed and no general contest with opposition appears on it. In cases where an election is organized by a political subdivision and its county clerk or election administrator does not serve as its early voting secretary, then information on its list must be available on its Internet website. If you have questions about applicability of anything from this calendar to your specific election, you can call the Electoral Division of the Texas Secretary of State's Office at 1-800-252-VOTE (868).
Under Title 15 of the Texas Election Code, candidates running for office must submit campaign contribution and spending reports. To learn about special circumstances related to withdrawal of a candidate before ballots are prepared, contact Elections Division of Texas Secretary of State's Office. This deadline does not apply to ballots mailed (domestically or from abroad) by certain members of armed forces who requested them using FPCA, as well as members of Texas National Guard or National Guard from another state, or members of Reserve, as well as their spouses and dependents; those voters have until sixth day after election day to return their ballots. If a political subdivision was able to cancel its election, then first day its elected officials can receive certificate of election and take oath of office is also specified.
