Write In Candidates On Board Election Ballot

WRITE-IN CANDIDATES ON BOARD BALLOT: One of the HLE BOARD members has declared that Texas Statute 209.00593 removes the legal right to have write-in candidates on our ballot. I asked the attorney today if this was true. The statute was reviewed and no wording in that statute removes the ability or our right to have a write-in candidate on the ballot. The statute would have to include language that specifically EXCLUDES that right. The Board member used 209.00593 item (a-1) as their ‘proof’ and the attorney said that wording does not remove our right to have write-in candidates. –> Click Here for Statute Link
