Election Information

  • Student Voter

    The Pearland ISD Board of Trustees comprises seven trustees who serve three-year terms. Annual elections are held the first Saturday of May. Each trustee represents the entire school district rather than a section of the population.

    The candidate who receives the highest number of votes for each respective position will serve as a trustee. Runoffs are not conducted unless candidates tie.

    According to the Texas Education Code and the Texas Election Code, mandatory joint elections are required for school district trustee elections. Board elections are held on the same date as the election for members of the governing body of a municipality located within the school district.

    For more information, contact Sheila Vershier, district election coordinator, at (832) 736-6153.
