Election Process Information
The City of Dalworthington Gardens has been under contract with the Tarrant
County Elections Administration for the entire election process for many years.
The Mayor and City Council call the election in January in a public City Council
meeting. The City Secretary’s office accepts applications from persons filing
for office. From those applications the City Secretary prepares the wording
for the ballots and submits the wording to Tarrant County Elections
Administration for ballot preparation. Tarrant County Elections Administration
produces the ballots. The Mayor, City Council and City Staff do not have access
to ballots before, during or after elections. Tarrant County Elections
Administration selects the Election Judges and the Election Clerks. Tarrant
County Elections Administration provides election equipment. The equipment
is tested and locked by Tarrant County Elections Administration staff before it
is delivered to the voting site. The Mayor, City Council and City Staff are not
given keys or passwords to operate the voting equipment. The voting
equipment is not connected nor does it operate off the City server or other
City lines. The Election Judges and Clerks are the only ones with access to
ballots and the voting equipment during the elections. Early voting is
conducted primarily off-site. Election results are counted by the Tarrant
County Elections Administration and the results emailed to City Staff from the
Tarrant County Elections Administration in Fort Worth. The same results are
posted on the Tarrant County Elections Administration website and available
for public viewing. The final election results are emailed from Tarrant County
Elections Administration and used by the City Secretary to prepare the

Water restriction notice:
The City is still under Stage 1 water restrictions in compliance with the City of
Fort Worth and the Tarrant Regional Water District. The primary focus of Stage
1 actions is to significantly reduce outdoor watering, which can account for as
much as 50 percent of the daily residential water used during the summer.
Stage 1 limits outdoor watering with an irrigation system or hose-end sprinkler
to a maximum of two assigned days per week for all customers. Residential
customers whose addresses end in odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) are permitted
to water lawn and landscapes only on Thursdays and Sundays. Addresses ending
in even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8 or 0) may water on Wednesdays and Saturdays
only. Non-residential customers, including apartments, businesses, parks and
common areas, can water only on Tuesday and Fridays. No watering is allowed
The time of day restriction, which prohibits outdoor watering with sprinklers
between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., continues to be in effect.
Watering by hand-held hose, drip irrigation or soaker hose is allowed at any
time. Residents are encouraged to limit such watering to a maximum of two
hours per day.
Other Stage 1 measures include the following.
- Vehicle washing is limited to the use of hand-held buckets and a hose with a positive shutoff valve. Vehicles may be washed at any time at a carwash.
- No hosing of buildings or other structures for purposes other than fire protection.
- Encouraging no hosing of paved areas, such as sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc.
- Encouraging hotels, restaurants and bars to serve water only upon request.
- Establishing new turf is discouraged, and a variance is required to do so.
