The cost to the state for publication of the resolution is $105,495.
According to the Texas Association of Counties (TAC), the fiscal impact to counties is not anticipated to be significant.
There would be a fiscal impact to local governments associated with an election; however, those costs would vary by locality and are not anticipated to be significant.
Based on costs reported to the Secretary of State (SOS) in 2010 by a sampling of counties, municipalities, and special districts, the average cost incurred by a local governmental entity for an election is $1.98 per registered voter.
