 On March 13, 2020, Governor Abbot certified that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) poses an imminent threat of disaster and declared a state of disaster for all counties in Texas.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Abbot’s Proclamation giving authority to political subdivision to postpone their May 2, 2020 election to November 3, 2020, the board has passed a resolution to postpone the May election until the November 3, 2020 Uniform Election. 
The WISD School Board Election will be included in the November 3rd County Elections. 
See the Order of Elections below to find early voting location for your county.
