As provided for in the Edwards Aquifer Authority Act, the EAA has a governing board composed of 15 directors elected from the single-member election districts and two non-voting, appointed directors. The elected directors serve staggered four-year terms which expire December 1 of each even-numbered year. Accordingly, the board orders elections of the appropriate number of directors on the uniform election date in November of each even-numbered year. For 2022, the board has ordered an election for Director District Nos. 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13, and 15.
The general election for the Board of Directors (“Board”) of the Edwards Aquifer Authority (“Authority”) will be held on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, in accordance with the Act creating the Authority, the Resolutions and Orders of the Board, the Texas Election Code and other applicable laws of the State of Texas.
