In a special called meeting on Monday, council members chose to move the special election date from Jan. 14 to Feb. 18, after both Collin County and Denton County election administrators were unable to offer a full-service contract to staff the January option.
As a result, the special election will be held Feb. 18, 2017. Early voting for the special election will take place Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017 through Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017 (excluding February 4, 5 and 12).
The elected candidate would fill an unexpired term in Place 1 and serve until May 2018. The vacancy is a result of a Councilman Bob Allen’s announcement in October to run for mayor.
Candidate packets are available via the City Secretary’s Office, 6101 Frisco Square Boulevard, 5th Floor. For more information, visit friscotexas.gov/elections, email CitySec@FriscoTexas.gov or call 972-292-5020.
