Change in Polling Location for District Elections

        The Texas Education Code requires school districts to hold joint elections with a governing body of a municipality located within the school district that conducts regular elections for the members of the government body annually on the May uniform date.
        As a result of this statute, Galena Park ISD will now hold annual trustee elections in conjunction with the City of Jacinto City annually on the second Saturday in May, which is the uniform May election date.As a result of this agreement, GPISD is moving the polling location of voting precinct number 3 (affecting voters in Harris County voting precinct 163) from Jacinto City Elementary, 10910 Wiggins, Houston, Texas 77029 to the Jacinto City Town Center, 1025 Oates, Houston, Texas 77029. The change of this polling location is effective immediately and will be in effect for the GPISD Trustee Election set for May 10, 2008 and all future trustee elections.
