Texas Water Code
Sec. § 59.025
Confirmation Election


Before a district may be created pursuant to a petition granted by the commission, a confirmation election must be held within the boundaries of the proposed district.


The directors appointed by the commission shall call and hold the confirmation election in the manner provided for conducting elections under Chapter 49 (Provisions Applicable to All Districts). The provisions of those sections relating to a directors election do not apply to an election held under this section.


If the creation of the district is defeated, subsequent confirmation elections may not be held to confirm the creation of the district.


A bond election, maintenance tax election, and any other election may be held at the same time and in conjunction with a confirmation election.
