Board Elections




    Fort Bend Independent School District will conduct an Election for Trustees Position 1, 4, & 5 in the fall. The election has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related public health concerns. The election will not be held on May 2, 2020. The postponement was possible following Governor Abbott’s  suspension of sections of the election code. Fort Bend ISD elections are conducted pursuant to a Joint Election Agreement with Fort Bend County, which selects the location of early voting and Election Day voting centers.
