General

Election Information including candidate statements ?

Clarification: The

information in this article pertains to residents of the City of Kennedale for

city elections and residents of Kennedale Independent School District for

school board elections. This can get

confusing because many citizens live in Arlington and will vote in Arlington

city elections but they are also reside within the KISD boundaries and will vote for Kennedale school board. School

district boundary lines do not match city lines. There are other areas of

crossover such as Ft Worth ISD and the City of Kennedale.
