To be qualified to serve as a director, a person must be (1)  a resident of the district; and (2)  a qualified voter.  A person is not eligible for election as a director from a commissioners precinct unless the person is a resident of that precinct.  However, a person is not eligible to serve as a director if the person is: (1)  the district administrator; (2)  the district attorney; or (3)  a district employee. (Tex. Special District and Local Laws Code Sec. 1115.054).

If a vacancy occurs in the office of the director, the remaining directors will fill the vacancy for the unexpired term.  A person appointed to fill a vacancy from a precinct must be a resident of the precinct the person is to represent.  (Tex. Special District and Local Laws Code Sec. 1115.055.)
