Cumulative Voting

AISD Board members are elected according to an at-large cumulative voting method. This means that each voter has a number of votes equal to the number of trustee positions up for election. Voters may cast their votes in any combination for the candidates. Since they are elected at-large, AISD Board members do not represent a certain geographical area of the District; rather, they each represent all students and all residents of Amarillo ISD.

  • Be a U.S. citizen.
  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Have not been convicted of a felony charge.
  • Be a resident of Texas and the Amarillo Independent School District.
