2020 Special Election - Historical Information

On Tuesday, January 21, 2020, the City Secretary received a petition requesting an election to adopt Texas Local Government Code, Chapter 143, Municipal Civil Service, for the Police Officers and Firefighters of the City of Missouri City, Texas.  Section 143.004 of the Texas Local Government Code states the following:

Sec. 143.004.  ELECTION TO ADOPT OR REPEAL CHAPTER.  

(a)  A municipality may hold an election to adopt or repeal this chapter as provided by this section.

(b)  If the governing body of the municipality receives a petition requesting an election that is signed by a number of qualified voters of the municipality equal to at least 10 percent of the number of voters who voted in the most recent municipal election, the governing body shall order an election submitting to the voters the question of whether this chapter should be adopted.  The election must be held on the first authorized uniform election date prescribed by Chapter 41, Election Code, that occurs after the petition is filed and that allows sufficient time to comply with other requirements of law.

During the November 5, 2019 general election, 7,981 qualified voters voted in the election. The number of persons found on the petition who are qualified to vote must be greater than or equal to 798, 10 percent of the November 5, 2019 qualified voters.  

The City Secretary completed examination of the petition and hereby certifies the results as follows:

1,903    number of persons found on the petition who are qualified to vote 

1,307    number of persons found on the petition who are not qualified to vote

3,210    number of persons found on the petition

During the February 3, 2020 regular City Council meeting, City Council called a Special Election to be conducted on May 2, 2020 for the purpose of submitting to the qualified voters a proposition providing for or against the adoption of the Fire Fighters’ and Police Officers’ Civil Service Law, providing for a joint election with other entities contracting with Fort Bend County for such joint election.  

Ordinance 20-03 ordering a special election on May 2, 2020

Ordenanza 20-03 que ordena unas elecciones especiales para el 2 de mayo de 2020

During the March 30, 2020, special City Council meeting, City Council discussed the postponement of the May 2, 2020 election date to the November 3, 2020 uniform election date, as provided for by a Proclamation issued by the Governor of Texas suspending certain provisions of the Texas Election Code as a result of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic.  

City Council requested to suspend certain provisions of the Texas Election Code which allows all local political subdivisions that are utilizing the May 2, 2020 uniform election date to consider an alternate uniform date for the election and agreed to postpone the election to November 3, 2020.

During the April 6, 2020, regular City Council meeting, Council approved an ordinance postponing the Special Election scheduled on May 2, 2020, to November 3, 2020, for the purpose of submitting to the qualified voters of the City of Missouri City a proposition providing for or against the adoption of the fire fighters’ and police officers’ civil service law on the first and final reading.
