Election Advisory No. 2021-22
Nov. 23, 2021
Precinct chair filing ends Feb. 12
Under Section 172.023 of the Texas Election Code, the filing period for the office of precinct chair begins 90 days before the date of the regular filing deadline for the primary election. For the March 1, 2022 primary election, the first day to file as precinct chair was Sept. 14, 2021. Because SB 13 does not take effect until Dec. 2, 2021, the precinct chair filing period for the 2022 election cycle opened on Sept. 14, 2021, pursuant to Section 172.023.
In accordance with SB 13’s changes to the precinct chair filing process for the 2022 election, the initial filing period for precinct chairs will end Dec. 1, 2021.
The filing period for precinct chairs will reopen Jan. 15, 2022 and close at 6 p.m. on Feb. 12, 2022.
