Creating a Culture of Voting

Melissa ISD is committed to creating a culture of voting among not only our educators, but also students who are eligible. (Note: Information regarding upcoming board elections will be posted on the School Board Elections page.)

Student Voting Day

Students who will be 18 years of age on or before Election Day can register to vote in local, state, and national elections.

The first Friday of each early voting period is designated as Student Voting Day in the State of Texas. Students who are registered to vote may cast their ballots at any polling location in their county of registration during the early voting period.

The Melissa Schools Board of Trustees approved a voting resolution at the October 16, 2017 meeting, which stated the following: “The Board of Trustees of Melissa ISD supports a culture of voting and seeks to encourage maximum participation by District employees and eligible students in the elections process.”
