Mayor & Council Seats
It is the responsibility of the City Secretary’s office to conduct and oversee the City election process. The open Council seats are at large positions; you may file for any one seat regardless of where you live in Fair Oaks Ranch. Elections, if not cancelled due to unopposed candidate filings, are held in May.
There will be no elections held for city offices for the 2019 year - places 3, 4 and 5 were unopposed. The City Secretary provided the certificate of unopposed candidates to City Council at the March 7, 2019 council meeting. Council declared the following unopposed candidate elected to office and cancelled the election:
- Council Member, Place 3 - Steve Hartpence
- Council, Place 4 - Laura Koerner
- Council Member, Place 5 - Snehal R. Patel
The Certificates of Election and Oaths of Office shall be issued to each candidate after the regular canvassing period would have taken place.
County Elections will not be held at City Hall for May 2019. Please contact your County Voter Registrar for polling site details.

Title 15 of the Texas Election Code pertains to campaign contributions and expenditure. All financial reports must be completed by the candidate's campaign treasurer, signed by the candidate, and filed in the City Secretary's office. Questions regarding the forms, reporting procedures, contributions, or expenditures, are to be directed to the Texas Ethics Commission at (512) 463-5800 as the election law strictly limits the role of the City Secretary's office to accepting and filing the various applications, affidavits, and statements, and noting the date of filing thereon.
