Election Information

  • Board Election
    The Jarrell ISD Board of Trustees consists of seven Board members elected to serve, without compensation, for overlapping terms of three years each. Elections are conducted annually in November.  Candidates run for specific places. They do not represent specific geographical areas; rather, each represents JISD at large.

    Four Board of Trustees positions were scheduled for the November 7, 2023 election: Place 1, Place 2, Place 3, and Place 6. The application deadline had passed, and Place 1, Cliff Tschoerner, was unopposed; Place 2, Crystal Phalen, was unopposed; Place 6, Jenny Arnold, was unopposed, and Place 3 had no candidates.

    Senate Bill 1 requires that unopposed races for cities, schools, and other local political subdivisions be declared elected, and the elections for those offices be canceled. Jarrell ISD must cancel the election for Place 1, Place 2, Place 3, and Place 6 because it is unopposed, and there are no opposed at-large races within the JISD election. 

    At the September 27, 2023, Jarrell ISD Board of Trustee Meeting, the board voted to approve the Certification of Unopposed Candidates and cancel the November 7, 2023 election.

    Bruce Epstein currently holds place 3. Since he did not sign up for re-election, the board will select someone to fill that position when his term expires in November.
