A variety of races at the federal, state and local level in the Cy-Fair area will be contested in elections this November. The primary elections to determine Democratic and Republican candidates on the ballot took place in July, and the deadline for candidates to file in local races was Aug. 17.

No elections will take place for Jersey Village City Council or the Cy-Fair ISD board of trustees this year. All three Jersey Village races were uncontested, so the city canceled its election in April, and elections for the CFISD board only take place in odd-numbered years. However, several candidates will be running for two open seats on the Harris County ESD No. 9 board of commissioners, which oversees the Cy-Fair Fire Department.


Here are some of the candidates that will be on ballots this November for seats representing Cy-Fair.
