ADMINISTRATION The parties agree to hold a "Joint Election" with Tarrant County and each other in accordance with Chapter 271 of the Texas Election Code and this agreement. The Tarrant County Elections Administrator shall coordinate, supervise, and handle all aspects of administering the Joint Election as provided in this agreement. Each participating authority agrees to pay the Tarrant County Elections Administrator for equipment, supplies, services, and administrative costs as provided in this agreement. The Tarrant County Elections Administrator shall serve as the administrator for the Joint Election; however, each participating authority shall remain responsible for the decisions and actions of its officers necessary for the lawful conduct of its election. The Elections Administrator shall provide advisory services in connection with decisions to be made and actions to be taken by the officers of each participating authority as necessary. It is understood that other political subdivisions may wish to participate in the use of the County's electronic voting system and polling places, and it is agreed that the Elections Administrator may enter into other contracts for election services for those purposes on terms and conditions generally similar to those set forth in this contract. In such cases, costs shall be pro -rated among the participants according to Section XI of this contract. At each polling location, joint participants shall share voting equipment and supplies to the extent possible. The participating parties shall share a mutual ballot in those polling places where jurisdictions overlap, However, in no instance shall a voter be permitted to receive a ballot containing an office or proposition stating a measure on which the voter is ineligible to vote.

LEGAL DOCUMENTS Each participating authority shall be responsible for the preparation, adoption, and publication of all required election orders, resolutions, notices, and any other pertinent documents required by the Texas Election Code and/or the participating authority's governing body, charter, or ordinances.

Each participating authority shall provide a copy of their respective election orders and notices to the Tarrant County Elections Administrator. The Elections Administrator shall prepare a submission, on behalf of all participating authorities, to the United States Department of Justice for preclearance of the joint election procedures and polling places, pursuant to the Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended. The Elections Administrator will provide to each participating authority a photocopy of the joint submission and any correspondence from the Department of Justice. The joint submission prepared by the Elections Administrator will not include submission of information for any special elections held by the participating authorities. Participating authorities are hereby notified and encouraged to prepare their own submissions to the United States Department of Justice for special election procedures, or any changes that are specific to their own political subdivision. By signing this agreement, each participating authority certifies that it has no unresolved preclearance or voting rights issues known to it that would preclude or delay Department of Justice preclearance of the joint election. The Elections Administrator will file an amended submission to the United States Department of Justice in the event that any polling places are changed after the original submission is filed, including changes resulting from the withdrawal of one or more participating authorities pursuant to Section XI I of this contract. III. VOTING LOCATIONS The Elections Administrator shall select and arrange for the use of and payment for all election day voting locations. Voting locations will be, whenever possible, the usual voting location for each election precinct in elections Page 2 of 11 conducted by each participating city, and shall be compliant with the accessibility requirements established by Election Code Section 43.034 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The proposed voting locations are listed in Attachment A of this agreement. In the event that a voting location is not available or appropriate, the Elections Administrator will arrange for use of an alternate location with the approval of the affected participating authorities. The Elections Administrator shall notify the participating authorities of any changes from the locations listed in Attachment A. If polling places for the May 8, 2010 joint election are different from the polling place(s) used by a participating authority in its most recent election, the authority agrees to post a notice no later than May 7, 2010 at the entrance to any previous polling places in the jurisdiction stating that the polling location has changed and stating the political subdivision's polling place names and addresses in effect for the May 8, 2010 election. This notice shall be written in both the English and Spanish languages. IV. ELECTION JUDGES, CLERKS, AND OTHER ELECTION PERSONNEL Tarrant County shall be responsible for the appointment of the presiding judge and alternate judge for each polling location. The Elections Administrator shall make emergency appointments of election officials if necessary. Upon request by the Elections Administrator, each participating authority agrees to assist in recruiting polling place officials who are bilingual (fluent in both English and Spanish). In compliance with the Federal Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended, each polling place containing more than 5% Hispanic population as determined by the 2000 Census shall have one or more election official who is fluent in both the English and Spanish languages. If a presiding judge is not bilingual, and is unable to appoint a bilingual clerk, the Elections Administrator may recommend a bilingual worker for the polling place. If the Elections Administrator is unable to recommend or recruit a bilingual worker, the participating authority or authorities served by that polling place shall be responsible for recruiting a bilingual worker for translation services at that polling place. The Elections Administrator shall notify all election judges of the eligibility requirements of Subchapter C of Chapter 32 of the Texas Election Code, and will take the necessary steps to insure that all election judges appointed for the Joint Election are eligible to serve. The Elections Administrator shall arrange for the training and compensation of all election judges and clerks. The Elections Administrator shall arrange for the date, time, and place for presiding election judges to pick up their election supplies. Each presiding election judge will be sent a letter from the Elections Administrator notifying him of his appointment, the time and location of training and distribution of election supplies, and the number of election clerks that the presiding judge may appoint. Each election judge and clerk will receive compensation at the hourly rate established by Tarrant County pursuant to Texas Election Code Section 32.091. The election judge will receive an additional sum of $25.00 for picking up the election supplies prior to election day and for returning the supplies and equipment to the central counting station after the polls close. Election judges and clerks who attend voting equipment training and/or procedures training shall be compensated at the same hourly rate that they are to be paid on election day. The Elections Administrator may employ other personnel necessary for the proper administration of the election, including such part-time help as is necessary to prepare for the election, to ensure the timely delivery of supplies during early voting and on election day, and for the efficient tabulation of ballots at the central counting station. Part-time personnel working as members of the Early Voting Ballot Board and/or central counting station on election night will be compensated at the hourly rate set by Tarrant County in accordance with Election Code Sections 87.005, 127.004, and 127.006. Page 3 of 11 V. PREPARATION OF SUPPLIES AND VOTING EQUIPMENT The Elections Administrator shall arrange for all election supplies and voting equipment including, but not limited to, official ballots, sample ballots, voter registration lists, and all forms, signs, maps and other materials used by the election judges at the voting locations. The Elections Administrator shall ensure availability of tables and chairs at each polling place and shall procure rented tables and chairs for those polling places that do not have tables and/or chairs. At each polling location, joint participants shall share voting equipment and supplies to the extent possible. The participating parties shall share a mutual ballot in those precincts where jurisdictions overlap. However, in no instance shall a voter be permitted to receive a ballot containing an office or proposition stating a measure on which the voter is ineligible to vote. Multiple ballot styles shall be available in those shared polling places where jurisdictions do not overlap. The Elections Administrator shall provide the necessary voter registration information, maps, instructions, and other information needed to enable the election judges in the voting locations that have more than one ballot style to conduct a proper election. Each participating authority shall furnish the Elections Administrator a list of candidates and/or propositions showing the order and the exact manner in which the candidate names and/or proposition(s) are to appear on the official ballot (including titles and text in each language in which the authority's ballot is to be printed). Each participating authority shall be responsible for proofreading and approving the ballot insofar as it pertains to that authority's candidates and/or propositions. The joint election ballots that contain ballot content for more than one joint participant because of overlapping territory shall be arranged in the following order: Independent School District, City, Water District(s), College District, and other political subdivisions. Early Voting by Personal Appearance shall be conducted exclusively on Tarrant County's eSlate electronic voting system. On election day, voters shall have a choice between voting on the eSlate electronic voting system or by a paper ballot that is scanned at the polling place using Tarrant County's eScan voting system. Provisional ballots cast on election day will be cast only on the eSlate electronic voting system to prevent the possibility of paper provisional ballots from being immediately counted via the eScan ballot scanner. Due to current limitations of the county's eScan ballot scanners, it is necessary that in the event ballot content for a particular participating authority or joint election ballot style is too lengthy to fit on a one page paper ballot, all election day voting for that particular authority or ballot style must be held on the county's eSlate voting system. The number of paper ballots printed for election day voting shall be, at a minimum, equal to the same election day turnout as in the last comparable election plus 25 percent of that number, with the final number of ballots ordered per polling place or precinct adjusted upward to end in a number divisible by 50. The Elections Administrator shall be responsible for the preparation, testing, and delivery of the voting equipment for the election as required by the Election Code. The Elections Administrator shall conduct criminal background checks on relevant employees upon hiring as required by Election Code Section 129.051(g). VI. EARLY VOTING The participating authorities agree to conduct joint early voting and to appoint the Election Administrator as the Early Voting Clerk in accordance with Sections 31.097 and 271.006 of the Texas Election Code. Each participating authority agrees to appoint the Elections Administrator's permanent county employees as deputy early voting clerks. The participating authorities further agree that the Elections Administrator may appoint other deputy early voting clerks to assist in the conduct of early voting as necessary, and that these additional deputy early voting clerks shall be compensated at an hourly rate set by Tarrant County pursuant to Section 83.052 of the Texas Election Code. Deputy early voting clerks who are permanent employees of the Tarrant County Elections Administrator or any participating authority shall serve in that capacity without additional compensation. Page 4 of 11 Early Voting by personal appearance will be held at the locations, dates, and times listed in Attachment "B" of this document. Any qualified voter of the Joint Election may vote early by personal appearance at any of the joint early voting locations. As Early Voting Clerk, the Elections Administrator shall receive applications for early voting ballots to be voted by mail in accordance with Chapters 31 and 86 of the Texas Election Code. Any requests for early voting ballots to be voted by mail received by the participating authorities shall be forwarded immediately by fax or courier to the Elections Administrator for processing. The Elections Administrator shall provide each participating authority a copy of the early voting report on a daily basis and a cumulative final early voting report following the election. In accordance with Section 87.121(g) of the Election Code, the daily reports showing the previous day's early voting activity will be distributed to each participating authority no later than 8:00 AM each business day. VII. EARLY VOTING BALLOT BOARD Tarrant County shall appoint an Early Voting Ballot Board (EVBB) to process early voting results from the Joint Election. The Presiding Judge, with the assistance of the Elections Administrator, shall appoint two or more additional members to constitute the EVBB.

The manager shall be responsible for releasing unofficial cumulative totals and precinct returns from the election to the joint participants, candidates, press, and general public by distribution of hard copies at the central counting station and by posting to the Tarrant County web site. To ensure the accuracy of reported election returns, results printed on the tapes produced by Tarrant County's voting equipment will not be released to the participating authorities at the remote collection sites or by phone from individual polling locations. The Elections Administrator will prepare the unofficial canvass reports after all precincts have been counted, and will deliver a copy of the unofficial canvass to each participating authority as soon as possible after all returns have been tabulated. Each participating authority shall be responsible for the official canvass of its respective election(s). The Elections Administrator will prepare the electronic precinct -by -precinct results reports for uploading to the Secretary of State as required by Section 67.017 of the Election Code.

ELECTION EXPENSES AND ALLOCATION OF COSTS The participating authorities agree to share the costs of administering the Joint Election. Allocation of costs, unless specifically stated otherwise, is mutually agreed to be shared according to a formula which is based on the average cost per election day polling place (unit cost) as determined by adding together the overall expenses and dividing the expenses equally among the total number of polling places. Costs for polling places shared by more than one participating authority shall be pro -rated equally among the participants utilizing that polling place. It is agreed that charges for election day judges and clerks and election day polling place rental fees shall be directly charged to the appropriate participating authority rather than averaging those costs among all participants. If a participating authority's election is conducted at more than one election day polling place, there shall be no charges or fees allocated to the participating authority for the cost of election day polling places in which the authority has fewer than 50% of the total registered voters served by that polling place, except that if the number of registered voters in all of the authority's polling places is less than the 50% threshold, the participating authority shall pay a pro -rata share of the costs associated with the polling place where it has the greatest number of registered voters. Costs for Early Voting by Personal Appearance shall be allocated based upon the actual costs associated with each early voting site. Each participating authority shall be responsible for a pro -rata portion of the actual costs associated with the early voting sites located within their jurisdiction. Participating authorities that do not have a regular (non - temporary) early voting site within their jurisdiction shall pay a pro -rata portion of the nearest regular early voting site. Costs for Early Voting by Mail shall be allocated according to the actual number of ballots mailed to each participating authority's voters. Each participating authority agrees to pay the Tarrant County Elections Administrator an administrative fee equal to ten percent (10%) of its total billable costs in accordance with Section 31.100(d) of the Texas Election Code. The Tarrant County Elections Administrator shall deposit all funds payable under this contract into the appropriate fund(s) within the county treasury in accordance with Election Code Section 31.100. XII. WITHDRAWAL FROM CONTRACT DUE TO CANCELLATION OF ELECTION Any participating authority may withdraw from this agreement and the Joint Election should it cancel its election in accordance with Sections 2.051 - 2.053 of the Texas Election Code. The withdrawing authority is fully liable for any expenses incurred by the Tarrant County Elections Administrator on behalf of the authority plus an administrative fee of ten percent (10%) of such expenses. Any monies deposited with the Elections Administrator by the withdrawing authority shall be refunded, minus the aforementioned expenses and administrative fee if applicable. It is agreed that any of the joint election early voting sites that are not within the boundaries of one or more of the remaining participating authorities, with the exception of the early voting site located at the Tarrant County Elections Center, may be dropped from the joint election unless one or more of the remaining participating authorities agree to fully fund such site(s). In the event that any early voting site is eliminated under this section, an addendum to the contract shall be provided to the remaining participants within five days after notification of all intents to withdraw have been received by the Elections Administrator. XIII. RECORDS OF THE ELECTION The Elections Administrator is hereby appointed general custodian of the voted ballots and all records of the Joint Election as authorized by Section 271.010 of the Texas Election Code. Access to the election records shall be available to each participating authority as well as to the public in accordance with applicable provisions of the Texas Election Code and the Texas Public Information Act. The election Page 7 of 11 records shall be stored at the offices of the Elections Administrator or at an alternate facility used for storage of county records. The Elections Administrator shall ensure that the records are maintained in an orderly manner so that the records are clearly identifiable and retrievable. Records of the election shall be retained and disposed of in accordance with the provisions of Section 66.058 of the Texas Election Code.

It is the responsibility of each participating authority to bring to the attention of the Elections Administrator any notice of pending election contest, investigation, litigation or open records request which may be filed with the participating authority. XIV. RECOUNTS A recount may be obtained as provided by Title 13 of the Texas Election Code. By signing this document, the presiding officer of the contracting participating authority agrees that any recount shall take place at the offices of the Elections Administrator, and that the Elections Administrator shall serve as Recount Supervisor and the participating authority's official or employee who performs the duties of a secretary under the Texas Election Code shall serve as Recount Coordinator. The Elections Administrator agrees to provide advisory services to each participating authority as necessary to conduct a proper recount. XV. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS 1. It is understood that to the extent space is available, other districts and political subdivisions may wish to participate in the use of the County's election equipment and voting places, and it is agreed that the Elections Administrator may contract with such other districts or political subdivisions for such purposes and that in such event there may be an adjustment of the pro -rata share to be paid to the County by the participating authorities. 2. The Elections Administrator shall file copies of this document with the Tarrant County Judge and the Tarrant County Auditor in accordance with Section 31.099 of the Texas Election Code. 3.

All parties shall comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, and codes of the State of Texas, all local governments, and any other entities with local jurisdiction. 7.
