For Our Precinct Chairs
Precinct Chair Filing Period: The Texas Secretary of State has announced the filing period for precinct chairs will open on Saturday, January 15, 2022, and will end at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 12, 2022. The election for the office of precinct chair will occur on May 24, 2022, and there will be no runoff election for this office. Texas SB 13 provides that precinct chairs will be elected by plurality vote in 2022. This means that the candidate who receives the most votes will be elected to the office of precinct chair, and there will be no runoff election for this office.
Proposed Precinct Maps: The Harris County Attorney has released its proposed Precinct Maps. It appears that Precincts are being adjusted if they are smaller than 100 voters or larger than 5,000 voters. The proposed changes to Harris County election precinct boundaries are reflected in the mapping documents below.
View the full map reflecting the proposed new boundaries, or click the files numbered by precinct to view a map reflecting the proposed new boundary for each county election precinct.
The Harris County Commissioners Court meeting to consider and adopt proposed changes to the county election precinct boundaries will be held on Tuesday, December 14, at 10:00 a.m. at 1001 Preston Street, Suite 934, Houston, TX 77002.
