Voting is one of the most important rights maintained as American citizens. It is an opportunity that past and present generations have fought to preserve. Exercising that privilege is a guaranteed way to ensure your voice is heard in governmental matters.
There are three expiring RISD board of trustees seats on the ballot on May 7. This is the first time that there are no at large trustee seats on the RISD ballot as part of the district’s new electoral system begun three years ago.
In January 2019, the RISD board of trustees voted to move to a 5-2 electoral system with five single-member districts and two at large representatives. Please click here to use the Dallas County map to find out what RISD district you are in.
There are three candidates running in both single-member district 2 and single-member district 5. RISD Board President Regina Harris is running unopposed in single-member district 4. While RISD voters in single-member districts 1 and 3 are not voting for a trustee in this election, there are also two state constitutional amendment questions on the May 7 ballot.
Early voting began April 26. Click here for a list of places to vote early.
Various RISD campuses and buildings will once again be polling places on Election Day.
