City of Granbury Elections
The City Secretary is the election official for the City and oversees the administration of City elections to ensure compliance with all city, state and federal election laws and policies.
The City contracts with the Hood County Elections Administrator to conduct joint elections along with other entities. Participating in joint elections enables the City to reduce election expenses and is more convenient for voters who can visit one location to vote on all issues including municipal candidates and school board trustees.
City elections for Mayor Place 1 and Councilperson Places 2 – 6 are held annually in November. The Mayor and five Councilpersons are collectively referred to as "Members of the City Council." The Members of the City Council are the only elected officers of the City and run for office by place. They are elected from the City at large for a term of three years, or until their successors are duly elected and qualified (City of Granbury Home Rule Charter, Section 2.01).
Eligibility requirements for public office are identified in the Election Code, Section 141.001 and qualifications specific to the City of Granbury can be found in the City of Granbury Home Rule Charter, Section 2.03: "Each Member of City Council shall be a citizen of the United States of America and a registered qualified voter of the State of Texas and shall be at least 18 years of age; and shall live within the Corporate Limits of the City of Granbury; shall have resided for at least one (1) year, next preceding the election at which they are candidates, within the Corporate Limits of the City of Granbury, and shall not be disqualified by any reason of any provision of any other section of this Charter; and shall not have been previously convicted of a felony."
