A drawing was held at the Humble ISD Administration Building Feb. 27 to determine the order in which the board of trustees candidate names will be printed on the May ballot. Candidates officially filed as of Feb. 17 for the May 6 election.

Position 3: Herron / Conrad
Christopher Herron attended and drew ballot position 1. Conrad did not attend the drawing.

Position 5: Dixon / Datta-Barua / Clayton / Prevot / Biazar / Crosselt / Panzarella
There was a lively ballot drawing for the seven candidates for Position 5, being vacated by Brent Engelage. Panzarella was not present but the other six attended.
