  • As a courtesy, HISD Board Services Office provides candidates running for HISD Board of Education positions with copies of election and campaign finance-related materials, including but not limited to Texas Secretary of State and Texas Ethics Commission election and campaign finance forms and general instructions. However, it is ultimately the candidate’s duty and responsibility to ensure that all election and campaign finance-related forms and materials currently required by the Texas Secretary of State and the Texas Ethics Commission are completed and submitted to HISD Board Services Office in a timely manner.
